and I have a one legged chicken living in my bathtub. There was an unfoturnate event where my doxie (Chocolate Cake) got in the chicken coop. Aurora was attacked and lost her leg. For the last two weeks I have been nursing her back to health and she sleeps in a rubbermaid tub in my bath tub. She is so incredibly sweet and stays in her tub even though she can fly or hop out. Since this incident we have built a new coop and we are adding an additional fence between dogs and chickens. No our house is not stinky, I change her bedding four times a day and she spends time out in the yard.
