I've had chicks in my kitchen since April. In April, it was awesome. In May it was cool. In June, well I still had chicks hatching, so it was all neat. But in July? Chicks + 90 degree heat + no a/c = smelly and FLIES. So I am proud to say my house is now CHICK FREE. We finished one division of my chicken condo yesterday, which allowed the batch of big chicks in my outdoor brooder to go into the big pen. That freed up the outside brooder for my last batch of kitchen chickens, 6 BLRW. The ones that left the brooder for the big pen are loving it! They're running around chasing bugs like mad lol.
