Thelma our Buff Laced Cochin
Pet Chickens: I want to know which chickens make the best pets?
If you are wanting a chicken just for companionship and are not worried about egg production, I would have to go with the Cochins. They do not lay well, but their personality more than makes-up for this. I have two Buff Lace Cochins and they are a fluff ball of feathers. They follow my wife around the yard and at the end of the day try and roost on her shoulders. You will not regret having these birds as part of your flock.
