How do I house 7 Silkie chickens in a city apartment? Please help. I only wanted 1 for my kids but agreed to 2 because I realized he would need a buddy. Minimum for delivery was 5 so neighbor agreed to take 3. Upon arrival I received 7 from hatchery. At the last minute, neighbor backed out and left me with all 7 Silkies. Now here I am...living in a NYC apartment with very little clue on how to appropriately take care of these chickens. Giving them up is not an option for I'm already attached to them. How do I go about building a coup and run in my living room? If push comes to shove, last resort might me taking them to mom's place where she has a backyard. Only thing I'm concerned with is predators and the cold NYC weather. Any good advice?
