    Parakeets??



    Seriously....what constitutes 'livestock' vs 'pets'?? It's just a categorization. People dont' think twice about keeping a parrot in their houses, but 'gross out' if you mention you had a hen that needed extra care in the house for a while.

    Silkies lay eggs sort of more or less on a reliable schedule, and don't look anything like chickens. If people ask you can call them rare asian ground parrots.

    I think a silkie would possibly qualify.

    Yes! You totally need an Asian Ground Parrot (which kinda sounds like something you would serve on a lettuce leaf).
