    Do like I do---put a window screen over their brooder or some bird netting. Chicks can fly after them wing feathers grow out. I have never kept any in the house----so if I had them in the house---I to would want them little stinkers outside ASAP. LOL

    I've used a window screen over my brooder also, it's keeps things ventilated and you can easily see through it.

    Good luck with your coop build!
