  • I don't have any, but my aunt and uncle have kept chickens for yeeeears. They also have a horse, a cow, and a wolf (long story haha). They're really cute, I think at one time they had like ten chickens and a rooster. The rooster was friggin evil, he would chase me every time I got near the coop. They always told me to just turn around and stare him down, and he would leave me alone...but good lord, he scared me O.o

  • My neighbor does. We live in the city and are allowed up to 12 chickens but no roosters. She gives me a dozen eggs per week and at the end of the month contribute money for the chicken feed.
    I love fresh eggs and this a really great bargain!

  • I so totally love chickens!! I have had them as pets ever since
    I was a kid. They make the best pets!! If you play with them a lot,
    they will jump into your lap and sit there like a cat, and want to be
    petted. I have 3 Banty girls. They sing so sweetly.
    (I still haven't figured out how to get rid of that martini avitar. I don't
    drink, and don't want that one!)

  • We have 2 hens and a rooster. We had 8 but the neighbors pit bull killed them. We are planning on getting more in the spring. They are my middle daughter's pets.
