    Like, if you wanted a chicken solely to live in your house as a pet house chicken!

    What breed do you think makes the best pet? (Obviously personalities differ from chicken to chicken and there are chickens that don't adhere to breed specifics, etc!)

    In the house? You do know it's unhealthy to have a bird in your home long term ? Any bird you raise and hold and coddle to can become one of the best of pets, mine were held day one and are the sweetest of girls. They come to us and they love to be held.

    Quote:I guess I should say this is just in theory. I don't have a big enough house to keep chickens in my house!

    my vote would be for a brahma or cochen, both very gentle but sturdy.
