I have ordered up my meat birds and they should be here around the 22nd so that gives me a little time to prepare. The game plan so far is to house them in the sun room. We will start them in a plastic tub brooder and then move them to a wire cage when they get bigger. I was planning to house them inside the whole time as we are going into winter and I won't need to build a Fort Knox chicken tractor to keep out the predators. Then today I see the posts about the stink. The wire cage I am building will have a catch tray underneath covered in paper. The paper would be changed daily. It will only be 15 birds, how bad will they stink. I see by some posts that the feed makes a difference in the smell. What brands of feed would you recommend to minimize the smell? Am I a nut for wanting to keep them in the sun room? Any advice will be welcome as this is my first attempt with chickens.
