    We currently have 4 OEG bantams sleeping in the house and a few weeks ago had 3 Delawares and 2 OEG bantams sleeping/living in the house. I was just wondering how many others had chickens inside [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] We are talking chickens not chicks!!! [​IMG]

    unless they are sick or hatching, they belong outside, and would never consider a live in chicken, we are not the beverly hillbillies.

    Quote:Actually I never said anything about live in chickens only chickens currently in ones home. This post is for fun not a should I keep chickens in my house post. I wish I was a Clampett..... swimming pools, movie stars and chickens!!! But alas I am a trucker living in a double wide with my wife and kids and cats and dogs and sometimes chickens. To each his own. [​IMG]
    I guess I am sort of a pre-oil Clampett? [​IMG] By the way two of the Delawares had mites(and no the rest of the flock did not). The other Delaware was new and under quarenteen as were two bantams. The four bantams that were in the house last night were the two that were under lock- down one that was trying to be broody, and one we didn't want to be lonely [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] We don't have a farm or a barn and would probably have chickens in the house at some point if I did. (stepping off of soapbox now)
    Hello to all and yes I am a little jealous that al6517 has room for such a large and diverse flock!!! [​IMG] no hard feeling [​IMG]

    I had a old hen in the house for several months. She was half blind and could not find food so I kept her in a guniea pig cage with food and water. She was in my kitchen and so she got lots of bits of food. She loved the extra attention and was very happy untill she finally passed away [​IMG]

    We only have one in the house- she came in because she was sort of staggering and looking poorly and the other girls were starting to peck her. We brought her in to recover, she staggered around for a couple of weeks and, in the process lost any winter acclimatization she had. I just can't put her back outside in the single digit temps we have here (and I'm not keen on sitting outside to see if the other girls will accept her back). She is inside until spring and we can re-introduce her to the sisters. (and, in the meantime, she has recovered and has started laying again- an egg every other day- to pay us back).

    Well I AM a Beverly HillBilly, and right now I have 7 silkie babies in my BEDROOM! If I hadn't lost my whole flock when I was in the hospital, I would find a way to have them all in here. I love my chickens and I live in Michigan and it gets COLD. Someday maybe I will be able to afford a little heated home for them, until then, they will be inside till it's nice enough for them.

    PS
    They have a nice little cage, they don't run loose. And it is alot of work keeping them inside. Keeping them clean everyday . . .

    I have one designated house chicken. She was injured and not doing well with the cold, and the others were beating her. She had to work way to hard for food and water. Now she's still got a puffy face but she's healthy and happy and laying an egg a day. [​IMG]
