Pet chickens may be thought of more as farm animals but many suburban homes are opting them pets. Chickens can be just as loyal as cogs. Some will sit in your lap, come when they hear their name, and even cuddle with you. Chickens can be affectionate.
Chickens are social birds and they do best in a flock, but a flock doesn’t need to be large. Even a flock of two chickens is enough to satisfy the birds’ social needs. Chickens are fairly low maintenance animals, don’t make much noise.
Chickens can be great with kids. All you want chickens that are soft and affectionate and capable of tolerating the high energy and rambunctiousness of kids. Some of the best kid-friendly chicken breeds include Cochins, Orpingtons, Brahmas, Silkie Bantams, Easter Eggers and Golden Buffs.
