    This is a really cute article about some city dwellers who came into possession of some chicks - check out the pictures - crazy looking coop!

    Personally, I can't believe they have the chickens inside. As much as I love my 4 new baby chicks (arrived Tuesday - yay!) and am happy to have them inside for the first 6 weeks, I can't imagine having inside for very long when they're all grown up.
    Anyone on here keep their flock inside? I'm curious.
    I also wonder if they will have trouble readjusting to outside life when cool temperatures hit.

    I have house chickens.
    It started when my Leghorn cockerel, Jerry, started to crow. I put him on the back porch with his buddies Slifer and Obelisk.We still wound up having to rehome Jerry, and then Slifer started to crow too...so they were inside birds. I lost Slifer in August and we got Penny in December. And they're still house chickens. They free range when I'm home to watch over them.
