    This hen is House Chicken. She developed a lump on her breast and couldn't fly up to the roost at night, whick is my porch [​IMG]. So my dad kept bringing her in the house at night. She sleeps under the tv, on the DVD's. My dad is bad for spoiling the ducks and chickens, so she knows he usually has something good. Here's a pic of her and her watching him eat his chicken noodle soup. [​IMG]

    She is just precious!!

    Wish I could let my chicks do that but the dogs and cat would have a chicken nugget happy meal.

    The cats stalk her, but if they get to close she squawks loudly and they leave her alone.

    Yeah the poop is fun, not too bad. I don't know what breed she is only she is a banty. I have her daughter too, but she is a bit bigger then her and the same colour. The rooster she was with is a Silver Duck Wing, i think thats what colour he is.

    OMG! You realize you've just created a horde of chicken owner monsters, right? :|

    Now I want a house chicken TOO! [​IMG]

    I have a banty that looks JUST like her. I call her Mama Cass. She's so sweet. She sits up for me when i go into the coop...lets me rub her chest. She murmurs.

    I don't know what breed they are but they are SO docile. It's no wonder she's a house hen! [​IMG]

    I am SO jealour! [​IMG]

    Aw what a sweetie! Our Rockie may become a house chicken soon. She is having a hard time in the cold. Never comes out of the coop. She is old, at leat 8 or 9 years old now. Wish I had a bigger house, because if I bring her in, Sasha will have to come in too. She'd be lonely out there by herself.

    Get her a chicken diaper. I think someone on this site makes them.
