We had some "outdoor" chickens, but when we decided not to buy this place we're currently living in and move back to town for a year or so, we gave them to a friend. They were LF, so no chance of having them inside. I am missing them so much! I am thinking of getting 2-3 bantam girls to keep inside in a large cage in my sewing room in our new place (we move this weekend). They can be let out some during the day in the yard to play, but the yard is very tiny, so no room for a coop outdoors. I'm not wanting to do the chicken diaper thing. My dh thinks I'm nuts, but I miss having chickens so much. I am recovering from depression and they are such good therapy. Those of you that have "house chickens" please fill me in on how you do it. Do you have problems with smell (I plan to change the tray under the cage every day or every other day) ??? Do you have problems with flies getting in the house worse than when you didn't have chickens inside? Any advise/tips would be appreciated.
