luckily we have a LARGE basement. I am going to try to make it so that the city legally lets me keep my girls. BUT. if they dont I am going to have the dh build me a coop and small indoor run in the basement. Which is mostly used for storage, and my laundry machines are down there. They wont be indoor in the basement all the time. I have plans to move the run we currently have to the rear/side of the house and then install privacy fencing, like we should have in the first place. to keep the anti pet chicken folks from discovering them. My neighbors wont say a thing. Is this doable? To me they will be no harder to keep clean than they are now. And no harder to keep clean than cages of other birds. But will being in doors. In a basement instead of a regular coop at night. Be bad for them mentally and health wise? There are windows. and it does get light in there. But not like a traditional coop does. And like I said. they will be out during the day, but in a more hidden spot. But with the same amount of space. I will just have to physically pick them up and carry them out and in daily. Not a big deal they are all good about this now a days. Does anyone else have them in this type of situation?? Or have I truly gone over the edge?
