Keeping a bantan hen as a indoor chicken Pet

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
We have thought about,but I am very convincing.

My grandma will be moving and going to Minnesota and the hens and roo will be stuck with two nuts (grandpa and his crazy friend),and I just wanna save one hen.

I wanna know as "Much" as I need to.

Is this a good idea?She enjoys us and peeps to us whenever she finds a treat (sometines).
She falls asleep and makes a perfect pet,but perfect enoughto be a indoor diaper baby?

I have a  few chickens.

2 barreds,named Falcon and Hawk

1 New Hampshire rooster named,Zeus

2 New Hampshire hens named,Vanillipe (One has no name)

1 silver laced Wyandotte named,Special girl

1 White Leghorn roosters named Foggy

3 black&red Sex links,(Black)angel,and one red is named little red,and the other one is Mrs.Prissy

And a few others that sadly,died

 

I have a 11 ducks.

Keeping a chicken solitary isn't healthy for it.  They're flock animals and won't be satisfied without one.  I know people who keep chickens indoors with diapers and outdoor time and such, but I don't know of anyone who keeps a solitary chicken - long term - that has a healthy and happy animal.  Despite our (human) interpretations of animal behavior in regards to our interaction with them - they'll always be happier with other chickens than with 1v1 human interaction.  Arguably, they don't really care much for people at all outside of food drive and fear drive.  I'd not recommend "saving" one hen...

So maybe I should get a 2nd bantam for her?
