I went with an outdoor adventure club to go horseback riding but I sorta got side tracked. After my first time around with the horsey I seen a chicken pen and sorta went nuts. I begged the farm owner to let me in with them and several kids and me went in and pet the chickens but I was in there for almost 2 hours. I want a chicken so bad but I know I can't legally keep one, outside at least. The farmer even said to me to just take one but the club director said I couldn't bring her on the bus I wanted to know a little more about keeping chickens. Could I keep one or two in a medium dog coop with a very small run built on it. The run has a wired bottom. I could easily bring it down to the ground if I have to. I'm not sure if I could keep them outside since you can't keep chickens where I live. Can you keep a chicken inside your house? I've seen chicken diapers on here and I could keep them in a cage I have that's roughly 50" X 30" X 25" and has a big door on the top. I want 1 or 2 hens and I could put a perch in there along with 2 food bowls and a makeshift nest. I'd probably use pine shavings as bedding. I would take them outside when It's nice out and I'd make sure they have a window. I'd keep them in the cage when I'm not home and release them into my closed off room when I'm around. I think it would work? Another problem is that I can't even find anyone that has some hens. I don't like to hatch eggs since I don't have good luck with babies and would like to save the heartbreak. Thanks for the help in advance!
