I was recently reading that people are keeping chickens as indoor pets. Does anyone here have a house chicken or know anyone who does? If so, how is it going? Here is a picture of Tori Spelling with her house chicken.

I was about to post “Who are you, Tori Spelling?!” As soon as I saw the post. Aside from her, I’d never heard of “house chickens.”

There is no way to potty train a chicken, so I think there’d be poop all over where they live.

@GoldfishPie: She also has inside goats so she probably either doesn’t care or has a really good maid.

Chicken poo is wet, gross and it goes everywhere! That’s a definite no for me.
Let’s not forget who started this trend…

I’m all for keeping chickens as pets, but INSIDE? No way Jose.

My parents have chickens but they only lived indoors as babies (in a large plastic bin). I can’t see keeping chickens in the house.

I don’t tend to view Tori Spelling as an example for good ideas. No way would I let a chicken wander around inside my home.

My roommate tried to bring a duck home as a pet. I lasted 4 days before I took that duck out to my friends farm.
Yes I actually took it out to a farm where my friend had her own ducks. Luckily it was young enough it learned to be a duck and fly away come winter.

@TankIsCute: Maybe they’re vegetarian/vegan? I have no idea.
@AlwaysSunny: Who started the trend?! I can’t see your pic.

Well, we have already ruined small dogs psychologically by carrying them around and treating them as if they are babies ( human), its a shame if they are doing that with chickens. I know they are cute and very itelligent , but they deserve to be kept in open spaces with grass, fresh air, and plenty of bugs to pick for!
