Who here has chickens or ducks that stay and live as a pet in your house unless you take them outside to range? I REALLY want a white silkie but I do not want to put it outside in the coop with my others. I want him/her primarily as a pet and possiby to show once or twice a year and I've heard they make nice pets temperment wise. I would be willing to make him/her a pen for outside time near my other chickens so he/she could have outside time during the day but at night I want to bring him/her inside.... I think I'm also about to ask about the dreaded chicken diapers too. Are they horribly messy to change? Do they ruin their fuzzy butt feathers? Should you ideally get a chicken used to wearing one as a chick or can they learn to wear one as an adult too? Anybody do really weird stuff like take their chickens for walks on a leash or for car rides?! And I'm really NOT laughing at you I promise, because I'm thinking about these things too!!! God, what HAS happened to me?!
