Hi there. For anyone who is or has wondered if keeping chickens in your basement is feasible, YES, it can be done! - and my wife and I have started a blog of our experiences. Although a proper chicken coop is strictly "verboten" in our slice of suburbia, we figured out a way to keep our own clandestine micro-flock, and are now enjoying the company of 3 wonderful pets and a daily supply of fresh eggs! Since we learneed so much from the BYC forum, we wanted to pass along some of what we learned. www.clandestinechickens.blogspot.com Enjoy!
