So it's totally crazy but I ordered 30 chickens from Mcmurry and hatched 20 ish quail....nuts because I live in Alaska and are keeping these guys in my greenhouse- my greenhouse is right off my dinning room. I was planing on keeping the chicks on wood chips and mucking it out offten- but my compost outside totally frozen and will be for a long long cold winter. So...I was wondering about layering the bedding with newspaper then woodchips then peat moss, red wringers ect. My brooder is a giant appliance box...think something like that would work, or better for the chicks to just clean out the bedding . It would be nice to have a nice organic mix to start out my plants in the spring thats thawed out but smell is a concern...I could use coffee grounds to help with keeping the smell down unless its bad for the chicks? What about gainv them live on red wringlers ? i'll to keep adding more but i have 2 pretty good sized worm farms going. Any ideas or tips? Keep in mind my chicks are right next to my living place.
