These chickens were owned by Rubeus Hagrid. He kept them in a pen near his cabin.

In 1992, Hagrid tasked Harry Potter with hunting down five of his escaped chickens to feed to Norbert.[1]

During the 1992–1993 school year many of the roosters were killed by Ginevra Weasley, under influence of Tom Riddle's diary, as a precaution, since the crow of the rooster would be fatal to Salazar Slytherin's basilisk. It is unknown if Hagrid ever replaced them.[2]
