    I house mine in the spare bedroom (chicks)--but I use an air filter for a furnance over the one end of their brooder. It REALLY cuts down on the dust in the room and you can use an air compressor to hose it off between hatches...

    Oh yes! They produce lots and lots of dust! Mine will only be brooded in my back bathroom for that reason alone. [​IMG]

    I had the incubators in my kitchen this summer (still do, though I had been planning to break them down, it's going to be another month yet). I didn't have the mess because the chicks were contained pretty well and not long for the brooder, but...Did you ever feel bad about making chicken for dinner around them?
