Aseel

“           if you noticed that i used the word 'game' for pro and con, i have my reasons. the asil or aseel was imported from the middle east and india because their gameness was used for fighting and grading into american and english games. cockfighting is illegal now and there is not much demand for game chickens that don't lay very many eggs. that being...” --cubalaya

Australorp

Australorp

“ I will start by saying that I love Australorps. In fact, my very favorite hen is an Australorp. She is such a sweet chicken and just let's you walk right up to her to pick her up. She doesn't run or anything. Sometimes she even comes up to me and acts like she wants to be petted. I love their deep black color with a greenish sheen and how they are built. They are also great layers. There was...” --chickenman98

bantam ameraucana

bantam ameraucana

“I purchased two bantam Ameraucanas from Cackle Hatchery. From day one they were such darlings. Even though they were a week old they seemed to imprint with me. My favorite one, Butter, however, turned out to be a male. As did the other, Blue. But I decided to keep them. They withstood the cold well, with their tiny pea combs remaining unfrostbitten. Blue eventually developed quite a temper....” --chickincrazy

Bantam Partridge Wyandotte

Bantam Partridge Wyandotte

“I don't have the partridge, but I do have the blue and Columbian varieties. I love these birds! Definitely one of my favorite breeds. They're good layers of pretty decent sized eggs for a bantam. They're friendly enough.  Mine don't care to be picked up, but will settle once I do. I think that's more my fault than the bird's, as I did handle them when they were young, but didn't...” --Chikenbutwut

Barnevelder

“ The two hens I had were purchased from a local lady that was moving house (England). They were 2 and a half years old, and in need of a new home. She had alot of other breeds, but these were so beautiful that they stole my vote immediately. Stunning lacing, yellow legs and very large and heavy. They are about the same size as my Brahma's. By far the most friendly hens...” --Sailing Dede

He is hand fed treats,...” --TXchickmum

Belgian d'Uccle

“ These chickens are so nice, and they are real lap chickens! I have one that's the bottom of the pecking order and whenever she gets chased or pecked she'll come running to me! She loves to be snuggled! Unfortunately she is too scared too eat on her own so I have to hand feed her. And she goes through phases where she won't eat a certain type of food for a few days ,and a lot of the...” --Ducclelover10
