    I use to have Old English game house chickens.
    It worked out because they were bantams and would follow me around :]

    [​IMG] No. they do make chicken diapers tho. I rescued a frizzle hen who spent the rest of her life in the house with me.

    I also kept my seramas in the house over the winter and you wouldn't believe the dust 14 seramas can make in the house! I had to change the furnace filter once a week! One special needs bird is one thing but several is bad....​
