The Amber Star chickens are good to be kept as pets. They can be very comfortable with people, though they can be flighty as well. Because they're flighty, they can get annoyed when people try to pick them up. To play with them is to run with them and watch them keep flying. It would seem as if their only goal is to fly off a fence.
