    Do I keep the new chicks in the house with me? I have 3 dogs that I believe would be bothered by this...

    If it is too cold outside, then yes you can keep them inside, or the garage. Make sure they have a heat lamp with their food and water near it so it doesn't get cold, chicks don't like drinking cold water. Make sure they are out of reach for the dogs to get to them.
