I'm considering building a large, multi-level cage in the living room for a few Bantams to entertain my mentally handicapped DD. I would use rabbit wire to build it, have a tray under the bottom for easy cleaning, and I think I'd wrap the lower portion with clear plastic to keep stuff from being kicked out all over the floor of the house. Any other ideas? How would you do this if you were going to keep a few small chickens in the house? (I really don't think it will be much worse than a few traditional caged birds, and probably a lot quieter than keeping a parrot or something like that!) Kathleen ETA: The space I have available is about two feet by four feet, and it's seven feet from floor to ceiling (we have low ceilings). With several levels in the coop, I thought we could keep maybe five little hens.
