    I have a few questions about house chickens that I would like to ask, I am not getting one, but I would like to know the answers in case something ever happened and I needed to bring one in. Plus I am just curious [​IMG]


    I know most people use chicken diapers, but how often would one change them, and how do you wash/ change them?


    How do they get along with cats or other animals?

    Where would they lay and sleep?

    Thank you!!

    I have never used a chicken diaper before, but I just put newspaper down in the spot I wanted my chicken to be. My cat is more scared of my chickens that they're of her. For sleeping, I would just have a small soft spot, maybe a blanket or an old towel.
