    I have a house chicken named Rad who is the first crossbred kept to continue my "personal" breeding program and home.

    My goal is simple, if wolves could be domesticated to become pets, why dont we have pet chickens yet?

    Im breeding for Docility, Intelligence, General Domestic Attributes, and small stature.

    I was just wondering if there was any interest in such a breed of housefowl?

    Any suggestions or comments?

    Ask those who breed Serama chickens. They breed tiny chickens for the pet trade. Some of the real tiny ones are about the size of a cockatiel.
