Wondering how different in temperament my chickens will be than my cockatiel. Are all domesticated birds similar in intelligence/behavior/personality? I know that as a pscittacine a cockatiel is of lesser intelligence than a parrot - where do chickens weigh in on that spectrum? I saw somewhere - maybe here - that the only difference between a parrot and a chicken is $3,000 so am assuming there's similarities, although clearly chickens don't talk...or do they???? I remember the process of taming my cockatiel many years ago; it was fun and easy - will it be similar with the chicks when I get them?
