Rent The Chicken does exactly that. You pay a subscription-like monthly fee and you get two chickens, a coop, feed, and instructions for how to care for the chickens. The chickens then lay eggs and you get to enjoy straight from the chicken fresh eggs at home.
I booked them because I thought it would be awesome to have chickens on the show. Animals are always a hit for us -- we've recently had a kangaroo, penguins, an owl, a rolling pigeon, a mini-horse, goat, dogs, and now the chickens.
The hosts also held two chicks and their reactions were awesome.
