I can see the attraction in keeping chickens as a pet, with the benefit of some eggs as well. They may not be as trainable as a dog but they are appealing creatures with their gentle clucking. We have four Sussex hens. They are 10 weeks old so won't start laying eggs for at east 2 months. Their names are Chickpea, Brussel Sprout, Angry Bird and Strummer Keet.
