    I occasionally have hens in the house that need re-coop-erate from one thing or another. Last November there were 2 nearly naked chickens in the spare bathroom for about 3 weeks. They dropped almost all their feathers then 2 weeks of freezing fog rolled in. They looked so miserable hunched and shivering in the coop. While not molting now, one of these hens has been campaigning at the back door to be a house chicken again. Haven't had a full time house chicken, yet. [​IMG]

    We currently have a sebright pullet recovering from an impacted crop who is living in a cage in our living room. As she gains strength, she gains in volume and insistance that she wants to get out!!!
    We have ordered her a chicken diaper to wear since she is putting on weight slowly and is likely to stay inside for a while. Now if we could only convince that cat that she is NOT food! or a toy!
