I'm planning to use large Rubbermaid bins for brooding. Dh is making/modifying the top so that it will be fully screened. Do I need to cut holes in the sides for more air circulation or ventilation than what the open top provides? I've been looking at tons of brooder pics, and some seem to have open or partially open/screened sides while others just have the open top.
