I have my lovely hen currently inside my house, free to roam my basement where it's heated. She also has a large cage with a nesting box, waterer, feeder, and perch. Problem is, she's messy! Another problem is it's 30 below outside and last year we were struck with a heavy blizzard that kept us indoors for days. I don't want her freezing, but I also hate the mess. It looks like a New York sidewalk, lol! I was thinking of trying the 'chicken diaper' from mypetchicken.com ?
