This last Spring two of our grandchildren brought my husband and I Snowflake and Brownie (they named them!) They were chicks that had hatched at their school. We had had chickens many years ago. Snowflake thinks she belongs in the house with the humans and is constantly looking for an opportunity to get in the door like slipping in as the dog goes out. Brownie is a bit timid and prefers to stay outdoors unless she happens to follow Snowflake in. Snowflake has been laying brown eggs for about a month and Brownie just laid her very first egg yesterday and to our surprise it was a light blue. I am enjoying the chickens as pets and for their eggs. I'd like to have a few more that lay different color eggs for the grandkids.
