My dad is 76, and he has a house chicken. She is one of my OEG hens and he found her on the porch one night and since then she sleeps in the house. Well thats fine, she's small, poops on the catscratch stand which is now her roost, and likes to eat the cats food. Well my dad likes peanut butter cookies, and he had one last night. I was in teh kitchen doing something and could hear him doing baby talk to the chick so I went to see. He was bending over letting the chicken eat his cookie. Tonight she came over to check and see if he had one. My DH doens't like her being in the house, but I told him he can just deal with it, its just a little chicken.
