We have an insane number of plastic doghouses and an insane number of chicks leaving dust EVERYWHERE in our house. The chicks range from 2 - 4 weeks. Would it work to set up one doghouse with shavings, etc. and see if I can rig a roost in there? I would find a way to get the heat lamp out there as well - probably shining in from the top corner of the opening. We need to wait a couple of weeks until we build a coop b/c one of his cutomers said we could take any leftovers from the house he's framing... which may be a lot since they're higher-end houses. Just wondering if the doghouse would work in a temporary situation. Oh, I forgot to say that the doghouse would go under our house (our house overhangs the foundation 27" in the back of the house. Why? I have no clue, lol!) so it would stay dry even if it rained. We would also cover part of the run. The run would be 10x10 to start and then once we get the coop built we can just add more panels (we're using chain-link kennel pannels). Thanks for any input!
