First of all, let me explain. I live in a city where chickens are allowed. I live in an apartment complex where almost everybody has cats and dogs, and my neighbor keeps a parrot. No one would object to a chicken, so that's not my problem. I've just always wanted chickens, forever, and never really had the opportunity to own one. Now, a friend of mine has rescued several chickens and I saw one hen and fell in love. Not sure what breed she is, I think she's a mutt. But anyway, that doesn't matter to me. I would give her a little henhouse of her own, and I could construct a "run" on a table thing, fill it with several inches of dirt. I'd take care as best as I can - I've been reading up a lot on keeping chickens - and I love the idea that I'd wake up to an egg in the morning. And, of course, I guess I could take her on a walk every now and then in the park on a leash, though that's sure to give me several crazy looks. I'm just worried that she'll be unhappy indoors, or that it would be inhumane to keep her like that. What do you guys think?
