    I was wondering if a 50 gallon glass aquarium would work for housing chicks? [​IMG]

    Yes, I've seen pics on here of people using aquariums for brooders so it should work fine.

    Its a super idea, keeps those peeps out where you can watch them. No chance of drafts because of the glass sides.

    It does sound like a great idea. The only problem I see is if water gets spilled, there will be little airflow to help dry out the bedding. If you stir up the bedding regularly and scoop out the poo, it should stay nice and dry and clean.
