How can I conveince my mom to let me keep the baby chicks inside? We are getting 15 baby chicks in March May or April... We have no other place to keep the baby chicks. We have ordered chicks before and kept them inside in my room, and it was not that big of a mess. (We had 27 then) She is acting like they are such a big mess. I am not saying they aren't but I took very good care of them last year when we got em', and they were not horrible like she is acting. There is no other place to put them, and them be safe. What could I tell/explain to her to let us keep them in the house.
