Just a thought.
Use a ventilation system designed to deal with it, then no problem. There's definitely something on the market, and if not; get it designed.

Money is the only factor.

Any particular reason on the bantam chickens over something like coturnix quail? I'm thinking quail myself just because the little buggars are so prolific. Begin to breed and lay eggs at 6-8 weeks. Tiny eggs but make it up in numbers of birds per square foot. I'll need an incubator though as they aren't great at going broody themselves apparently.

Not really. I just have more experience with chickens. I believe quail would work fine.

Just my opinion.
