Little Hen, Big Family

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My husband and I have two kids, 2 dogs, 2 cats, a leopard gecko and now a buff silkie hen. I have kept chickens before, and am very excited about our new addition. She is currently 6 weeks old. Her name is Chickie. She has a small cage in the house with rugs and newspaper beneath and a bed and bowls inside. During the day, weather permitting, she goes out in the fenced yard with the dogs. In the evening, she comes in for cuddles and to sleep in the cat tower. I am hoping to find insight on indoor pet chicken keeping.

Welcome to BYC! Love the Silkie :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Welcome to Backyard chickens - it's your lucky day.  There is a very active thread called  "people with house chickens."      My friend has had house chickens for over 25 yrs., various breeds but mostly silkies.   Currently she has 2 seramas and 2 silkies in the house.  When she runs errands, the "flock," sleeps by the  door with the dog. When she comes back , they mob her and want to know what she brought them.
