We had two chickens a few years and the regularly produced plenty of eggs. They were relatively calm and happy, and were never bothered by much. In fact, they quite enjoyed the occasional hug!

Our chickens lived with our guinea pigs and they got on exceptionally well. They all adored each other! The chickens also liked the dogs and were always interested in what they were up to.

Their eggs were lovely and they were pretty easy to maintain. Definitely recommend if you're looking for a good layer with a nice temperament.
