My parents dogs mangled 2 of their chickens, so Mom has been keeping them in the house in a big plastic bin, while nursing their wounds. It's been about 2 weeks now and they are well enough for her to let outside for some exercise and scratching. Anyhoo, it was getting dusk outside and she heard this awful banging and scratching on the sliding glass door yesterday. She went to look and it was the 2 chickens. She opened the door and they walked right on in the kitchen, she picked them up and put them in their bin. They have got so used to being in the house they don't want to leave, LOL.
