oK After all my research for having chickens in the city, I can see that the city isn't interested in people having them in the city. They put too many restrictions on the whole thing. I have considered getting a couple smaller chickens and keeping them inside a bird aviary. I would love feedback. Is it unhealthy for chickens not to be out doors? I can use UV lights as my birds get those. How much space would a couple small chickens need? What are the smallest chickens that give the best size egg for eating? Eggs are the bonus. I just want chickens to enjoy. I had button quail one year that lived in the bottom of my aviary, under my free flighted canaries and finches. When I just cut back to parrots, I gave the quails up too. They were fun. Not so fun when one got out, lol, as it would find the first thing to get under and hide out. Not the easiest little things to catch. They were quite territorial also. I am just about ready to decide no chickens until we move into the country, which will be a few years yet. Kids still in school here. I know keeping one chicken isn't ok, as it will get lonely. Has anyone here done the indoors thing? I would love to hear more about it. Thanks.
