Steven Tyler collects birds.The Aerosmith frontman loves his feathered friends and has a flock of chickens, a turkey, two peacocks and two cranes as pets.Steven, 59, said: "I usually lay in bed until ten, but the sound of the chickens often wakes me up a lot earlier."One of them is nine-years-old and still laying eggs. I call her Biker Chick."I've also got a wild turkey called Buster, my peacocks, Harley and Davidson, two African cranes and the dogs, Lucky and Bailey."Despite being an animal lover - the rocker loves fur and sleeps under an empress chinchilla throw every night.Steven recently revealed he was terrified of gaining weight and not fitting into his tight leather trousers.

He said: "I watch what I eat because I have this ongoing nightmare I'm going to end up looking like other rock stars of a certain age who bounce around the stage.

"I still want to be able to fit into those pants I wore on the last tour. I just live by the motto that nothing tastes as good as being thin feels."
