While I truly have no experience with this, I know my house chicken (often) co-exists peacefully with my rescue terrier and my blind cat. When squabbles break out, it's usually the dog yelping because the chicken pecked her. Outdoors, my ducks, geese and chickens free range together without major incidents. So, depending on the chicken and the parrot, maybe.

As far as diseases go, I would either ask a veterinarian. In the past, when I wanted free advice, I've contacted my state's veterinary teaching hospital.

Well one of the things I forgot to mention is the chicken is a polish so part when it comes to that with the pecking and knowing my chicken I would think that would be the less of the problem I’m more worried about the diseases that could be harmful to my parrot mainly with them having the more sensitive system

Out chickens are with dogs and cats they usually head back to their house when the dogs are out (don’t blame them are older dog got hungery once) but I’m more worried about the diseases cause the bird In question is a polish who are at the bottom of the pecking order plus she is like a dog and I call her my parrot until I get a parrot
