So we have enjoyed having our flock of 3 red sex links since early this spring, but a recent mishap with our beagle has forced me to either get rid of the chickens or the dog. And well the dog is too well behaved other then this one mishap (he was trying to play with one of the chickens and mauled it pretty bad). My daughter loves the birds, and was very unhappy about letting them go. I am now thinking of making or buying a cage (something like this http://www.glevumpetsupplies.co.uk/acatalog/chinchilla-cage.html) & letting her keep 2 bantam size chickens in her room. What is the feasibility of this. They would still be allowed outside to play in the summer time as long as we were with them, but primarily they would spend there time in the cage. The breed would probably be Cochin's or Brahma's. As my daughter thinks silkies are funky looking (she's 4 so who would have thought that she would like the fuzzy ones). Any input on this would be greatly appreciated.
