Jennifer Aniston wants to raise chickens at her $21 million mansion.

The 'Friends' star - who is engaged to actor Justin Theroux - is reportedly keen to have the birds in the coop already build into the grounds of the couple's Bel Air home.

According to, the 44-year-old actress wants to raise the ''social animals'' on her property, which is currently being renovated.

She said: ''They've very social animals, and they like it when you visit them with a cup of coffee in your hand. According to my groundskeeper, they love pasta.''

Jennifer and Justin, 41, announced their engagement last summer but plans for the wedding have apparently been delayed because of work on their mansion and busy acting schedules.

A source recently revealed: ''Wedding bands were designed and Jen was deciding on a dress.''

However, it was said ''wedding talk has stopped'' because of ''other priorities''.

While their nuptials have been postponed, it was reported the couple are committed to each other and simply ''need to figure out a way to create a life that makes them both happy.''
