OEGBs are most definitely my favorite breed of chickens! My very favorite hen I ever had was a silver duckwing Old English hen named Blaze, and she was the sweetest, cutest thing. She would run up to you to say hi (she wasn't really a cuddler, but I think that if I had spent more time with her, she would have been) and loved to greet and socialize. Blaze was also one of the calmest hens I have ever met. She would put up with daisy chains, back-to-back second grade show and tell (for my brother) and a seventh grade biology lesson (for me), and on one notable occasion, a chicken diaper. We never needed to watch the chickens too closely when Blaze was around, as in her short two years, she battled against three hawks and six cats, and won each time. She was a tough cookie, also winning many battles against my blue Crocs (which were my coop shoes at that time). She died suddenly just after turning two, for reasons still mysterious to us. She was the spunkiest, most character-filled, adorable little hen I have ever had the privilege to own.
