Can you keep chickens in your house - Page 6

post #51 of 54

I like the idea of a play pen, will have to look into it. 

 

I would not recommend a chicken for an indoor pet, but having wound up with one, we've found a system that works. :)

 

I should also add that our home owners association prevents us from putting her outside in a coop.  If we could,  we'd get her a friend and plop her out there.  

 

It's a wild and wacky adventure!

My town has an ordinance that prohibits housing poultry in any dwelling. Violators are ordered to remove the birds. It comes with stiff fines for each day of non-compliance. The process for legally housing poultry requires an inspection and permit process. It is important to realize that, though you may choose to keep and house chickens like housepets, in most municipalities they are not considered pets and not afforded the same privileges as other species of birds more commonly considered as pets.

The Brahmas are gone, it's all silkies and as much as they are friendly towards her, she gets scared whey they peck at her. I tried introducing her at night and she started making loud sounds, woke the neighbords, so once I brought her in, she was happy.
When it comes to my pets I treat all the same, I pick my dog's poop everyday so it's the same for the silkie. I clean her area in the morning before giving her fresh water and food and I clean it again right before putting her to bed, and if there is a stinky one during the day, I clean it up right away..
She loves spending time on my lap rather than on her area , when she sees me in the computer, she calls me and goes on until I pick her up and sit her next to me. Next to my outdoor silkies, she acts like an indoor pet. Dust, well I did notice dust but being a clean freak, I dust once a day usually.

Before I got my furniture I slept on the floor and she slept next to me. Not a single move or noise all through the night.10-12-11 (6).jpg

As far as pooping all over the place, rarely happens, somehow she has learned to only do it in her area, and she only does it in one corner, not all over the place.
my pekin bantams living in my house since 3 days old now five weeks playing chill on my lap pop and I run around and pick it up then I put them back in their box to sleep dreading putting them out England is wet cold horrid!! Wish I could keep them inside forever I regularly clean and bleach my home after everytime they are out exercising gosh a long thing but I'm loving them

If you are not living for something;

You are dying for nothing.
