I have a large wire dog crate (fits a 70lb dog, not sure of dimensions tho). I will be putting cardboard around the lower part to keep the bedding in. Once the chicks get bigger, I plan to use "rabbit corral" panels to make a run for them to have more room and get exercise. We have an addition at the back of the house that used to be a porch. It is fully enclosed and insulated, but not heated/cooled. There is a door from that room into the house, and the dogs will not be allowed in there. The floor is vinyl, so it will be easy to clean up any messes they make. I have a light reflector on an adjustable stand that my dad made a while back. I have things to use for perches. I have themometers. All I have to get is the feeders and waterers. Is there anything I'm forgetting? What Should I use for bedding? Sand or pine shavings? I can get both easily.
