    Full Text Summary Of The Brochure:

    Here’s The Open Sanctuary Project’s “Indoor Chickens” text summary:

    Panel 1: “Indoor Chickens: A short guide from The Open Sanctuary Project”

    Panel 2: “Sharing your Home With Chickens?

    Did you know chickens can do quite well living alongside humans in a house or apartment?
    More and more compassionate caregivers are caring for companion chickens inside their own home, rather than setting up a separate outdoor structure.
    Caring for an indoor chicken or two will give you a unique opportunity to learn about and share your friends’ personalities and stories on a very intimate level, and as a bonus, you can be a part of the growing international microsanctuary movement!”

    Panel 3 & 4: “Benefits To Housing Chickens Indoors:

    There are numerous reasons why, with careful planning, chickens actually may live better lives indoors with humans, rather than outside in a coop! Reasons include:
    • Protection from the elements Protection from predators
    • More opportunity for close observation Minimizing crowing complaints Increasing the • number of available homes for more chickens in need

    Plus, more quality chicken time!”

    Panel 5: “A Fulfilling Responsibility

    A chicken is no different from any other indoor animal companion. You will always have to make allowances and take safety precautions to make sure that your friends are safe, no matter what their species.

    But can you imagine a better afternoon than snuggling next to a fluffy friend on a fleecy blanket? With the guidance in our indoor chicken resource, you can easily welcome a chicken friend into your home and enjoy moments such as these!

    Panel 6: “We Have Helpful Chicken Guidance!

    The Open Sanctuary Project has dozens of free guides, videos, and certificate courses to help you create the best, most compassion-filled life for chickens in need!

    An indoor chicken caregiver must:

    • Create & maintain a clean, safe space Provide safe flooring
    • Offer chicken-safe elevated spaces
    • Keep chickens safe from things they could accidentally ingest
    • Observe precautions with other companion animals
    • Provide opportunities for chickens to engage in natural behaviors
    • Provide Indoor enrichment
    • Stay vigilant about air quality & toxins
