My first 3 birds were 2 Rhode Island Reds and a Silver Laced Wyandotte. The Wyandotte is my favorite by far. She is very fluffy and tolerates my picking her up for a little petting or to put her in the coop. I love her little vocalizations too, she'l let you know when she wants to be let out of the coop (pretty much any daylight hour) or have a treat; but she isn't loud at all.
My RIRs are another story; great production but not much beyond that. One of the Reds is super flighty while the other is mean to the other hens. As much praise as they seem to get I wouldn't advise getting them; especially not for a mixed flock like I have. Funnily enough, the alpha hen (a Red of course) picked more on the other red than my Wyandotte; that is until this Red met a predator one day. And that was the end of the bullying. I don't really have experience with the other breeds, but I am currently rearing a Sussex, which I've read have great temperament and a Polish, somewhere in the middle.
