I read somewhere here than Silkies make good house chickens. If you have one running round the house it'll be a good idea to get him/her a chicken diaper. They poop a lot and they like to sit on the furniture...

I would go with a Silkie or a bantam cohin (frizzled cohins are funny!)
Also agree, a diaper is recommended

I don't mean to spoil your fun, but just as a reminder, chickens can be a source of disease for humans. Like many of our pets ( dogs and cats). You will want to have a program inplace to minimize issues.

Looks like the silkie is getting the nod. If I had one, I'm sure she would be living in my house too!
