OK, incredibly weird, hypothetical question here...

    Dad jokingly said that he was going to let the chickens loose in the kitchen, where it was warm. Said we'd have really fresh eggs that way, just pick 'em up and put 'em in the skillet.

    Of course, that'll never happen, and I'm not interested in house chickens, but it made a weird thought cross my mind...

    If chicken-diapers are put on to be right under the vent, and bother droppings and eggs come out the vent... what happens when a diaper-wearing chicken lays an egg?

    We're finally planning to move our last group of chicks out to the coop. They are 7 weeks old and have been living in the living room. Blue Orpingtons - one dark blue/gray cockeral (named Ash), a slightly lighter blue/gray pullet (named Smoke), and a black pullet (named Cinder). They are so well-behaved, we haven't even needed to put a top on the rubbermaid brooder box!

    Hard to see his comb in this pic, but Ash is in the front and to the left.

    We sometimes let them roam around the house to explore, but of course there is always mess to clean up. The little cockeral occasionally likes to hop out on his own, and runs maniacally around the room; apparently pretending to fight off some imaginary danger, or simply practicing his jujitsu moves. (He never seems to feel that danger can come in the form of any of our other pets (dogs, cats, rabbit); so I wonder what he could be imagining? They are the sweetest, tamest chicks I've ever raised... I'm gonna miss my little house babies, when they move outside to join the rest of the flock.
