We have babies coming in one week and will have to keep them in the house for a while (we had snow this past weekend, 18* this morning, and are supposed to have freezing rain this weekend...). Is there a way to keep the smell to a minimum? I had planned to keep the brooder really clean, especially since it would be inside the house, but the woman at the feed store said the smell will convince us to move them out soon! We do have a basement that is not too cold--about 60* and we do have a heat lamp--but there is little to no natural light down there--I call it "the cave." I see that many people keep their babies in the house to start--is it really that bad? Thanks!
