    Hi my name is, Sherry from FLa.
    I am getting six chickens, my neighbor is giving me his, he is also making me a coop 8×16, he is only 13 years old.I have no ideal what breed they are yet, except the rooster is a red rode island (not spell right lol)
    I have been reading up on chickens, I do have parrots inside my house, I breed and hand raise cockatails. My question is can chickens be as smart as a parrot?
    Also I am housing my neighbors peacocks, they are 3 years old, soon I hope to get peahens, so I can breed them, I love watching them they can be so funny chasing each other playing around.
    Glad I found BYC!! For the chickens plus I am a member on Bird channel for parrots.

    Hello Sherry and welcome to BYC from Kentucky. Chickens are actually a lot smarter than people give them credit for. I can't say however if they are smarter because I've never raised or had parrots. [​IMG]
