She'd probably be afraid of it.

We have an Araucana hen and this Roo is mixed breed.
We bought mixed chicks, we finally offed the one roo because he was too aggressive. This Roo is nice but hogs the feed when we throw it out. But when he mates, he's nice and doesn't pluck their feathers out.
We have one more hen, she's reddish, not sure what breed.

We had one that would beg from the table and she'd jump if you held food up.

Anthony I used to have BIG parrots, so I've always loved having birds that are hand tame etc..My grandfather was an old chicken farmer, so maybe it's in my genes
I agree my chickens are very entertaining, funny to watch their antics , mine are very friendly, and when I go in the run, heck I've got one jumping on my back if I bend over, climbing on my shoulders, sitting and falling asleep in my lap..
And watching them with Masi is a hoot as well Just like having another 'pet' to interact with..I may start teaching them "chicken agility"..Hazel is a good jumper (speck sussex) when I walk in the run, she is the first one to jump on my arm if I hold it out..

I also have some silkies, but I'm not sure if I want to keep them. They are adorable but they are higher maintenance!
Chickens in general are really entertaining to watch. They love to forage and dig and they can be very friendly.
I had one hen that would follow me around like a puppy - she'd wait for me to turn over rocks and then she'd jump right in to eat anything that was underneath. When she was done she'd look up at me and wait for me to move onto the next one. She was never afraid of rocks rolling around. Unfortunately she was one of the ones that got eaten in my predator attack, probably because she was so docile.
I've always been a bird lover - I grew up with parrots - chickens are not all that bright, and obviously they don't talk, but it's like having a low maintenance version of a parrot. They are friendly and also don't have the same attitude that some parrots can have.
I have to be really careful free ranging - we live in the middle of the woods, I let the chickens out for an hour or so in the afternoon so they can forage and then they go back into the coop on their own to sleep, but I try to stay with them. We did have hawks hanging around for a while, but they seem to have moved on, and I don't think any were big enough to take out a full grown chicken. We also saw a fox a few times, but haven't seen that in a while either.

How are chickens fun?
I'm not being sarcastic. I'm a city slicker, and can't figure how to have fun with a chicken.
