A question about chickens

Can you keep just one chicken or do they need companionship? I just got off the phone with our local animal control board and they told me that you were allowed to have 5 non-crowing and 1 crowing chicken here. I thought we would start extremely small as in one chicken and see how it went. Is that possible?

I think so. My grandmother kept a pet chicken. It was fine.

I have no idea, but I can't wait to hear how it goes!

Best of luck!

I don't know. I want to raise chickens, too, but we live on a busy road. I have to wait for a fence.;0)
