    This is my first thread on BYC, I'm so excited to start this new page of mine! I have a nice roo and hen here at home with my family. My chickens serve as therapy pets for my younger brother, we've had chickens ever since he was diagnosed with autism. He's always talking about them. Has anyone ever noticed how chickens facial expressions change? Not literally but through their eyes?

    I've heard of chickens being used for therapy animals many times. They are just the right size for laps

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Oh definitely! You can see emotions in the eyes, the way they look at you and even learn their intentions. If you sit with your chickens long enough, you can see them talking to you through their eyes.

    Enjoy your flock and welcome to our flock!
