My husband and I have two kids, 2 dogs, 2 cats, a leopard gecko and now a buff silkie hen. I have kept chickens before, and am very excited about our new addition. She is currently 6 weeks old. Her name is Chickie. She has a small cage in the house with rugs and newspaper beneath and a bed and bowls inside. During the day, weather permitting, she goes out in the fenced yard with the dogs. In the evening, she comes in for cuddles and to sleep in the cat tower. I am hoping to find insight on indoor pet chicken keeping.
