Sparkles was such a cool chicken! She had curly feathers and she loved being held. She reminded me of a parrot. She was very curious and liked to follow me around. I only had her for a few months and lost her to a stray mean dog who got in our backyard.
I built her a little house to sleep in similar to a doghouse just smaller. She had a giant dog kennel as her pen and she had a couple of chicken buddies too. She ate regular chicken feed and drank from a dish I hung on the side of the pen to keep her out of it.
Chickens are cool pets. They are smart like dogs or cats and they eat all the yucky bugs that take over the backyard so we don't have to spray pesticides. As they forage around the yard their poop fertilizes the grass too. I recommend frizzles for anyone, they are really cool. She is the reason I became a vegetarian :)
