    i just joined. I'm looking to get a couple pet chickens next year, 2019.
    I want to learn as much as possible beforehand. Also having a forum for help and advice I find to be invaluable. I live in Chicago and have tortoises, lizards and a dog.
    Thank you for all the great info I have already found.

    Thank you. I'm sure I will. Always wanted a pet chicken. Had a flock when I was a kid. They weren't friendly though. On vacation in June in Hawaii, chickens all over the island, we had one that visited with us every day. She was very friendly. That sealed the deal that I did indeed want a pet chicken.
