After decades of loving chickens and dreaming of owning one I finally jumped at the chance when my friend asked if I was interested in getting a chicken since she was getting more for her coop. I'm now the proud mama of Dorothy or Dottie, a six week old black and white mottled patterned, frizzle serama... the breeder told us that because she was a frizzle she would do much better as a house chicken so that's what I intend to do. I want to make sure since she'll be spending the majority of her time indoors that she's fulfilled... any suggestions? She spends a lot of time out of her cage and just wants to be with me, but I'm having ttrouble dealing with some things... she calls for me non-stop unless her cage is covered, is that because she's young? Can you find a way to curb their need to peck you because she got me really good in the eye the other night? And as far as pooping, it's constant, any suggestions on how to deal with smell or possibly potty train to some extent? I have spent 100 dollars on various chicken diapers, the first kind was a no go so I'm hoping these others will be better. Any help or suggestions would be so appreciated !
