For all the talk about how pea-brained chickens are, you may be surprised to find that each chicken has its own distinctive and endearing personality traits. You will certainly be tempted to spoil them, pick them up and hug them to show them off to your friends and give them their individual names as you get familiar with each chickie’s personality characteristics.  Some chicken breeds are naturally more social than others, but your behavior can have a big impact on how social your chickens are. Look at this pet chicken who lives at the home of my friend, Peg, and tell me this chicken doesn’t have personality!
