I have a pair of Narragansett females (along with 5 Ameraucana chickens) that are pets. I've read that it's better to raise them with others. I don't let them free-range, except while I'm out to keep an eye on them (because of hawks, owls and neighbor's wandering dogs). They're very attached to me. They tend to almost panic when they see me walking away. Narragansetts are supposed to be one of the more docile breeds-- I have small kids, so that was an important factor. They do sometimes pick on the chickens, though. I've blogged about mine here .
