Am I nuts or has anyone heard of doing this or even done it themselves? Sucky economy, etc is forcing me to consider the idea that I may need to move back into the city after only 6 months in rural paradise, but I hate the very idea of giving up on having any chickens at all. The decks/patios are all about 10 feet or so in length and about 6 feet wide, and while I couldn't use up all that space, I'd like to think I could make use of half of it and do sort of a multi-level coop that would make the most use of the space. If I was to do this, I'd need some super mellow super quiet hens. What sort of banty would be the best? Any suggestions? Also, I'm wanting hens that would be consistent layers, not just ornamental, although that's always a factor. Suggestions? Thanks!!
