I am a first timer with chickens. I raise ducks and rabbits so this was a new venture. I bought four of the cutest black peeps I had ever seen @ our local farm exchange and just identified them on BYC. Apparently they are black sex links and I was kind of surprised on the comments I viewed regarding them. Mine are INCREDIBLY friendly. Come right up to me when they see me and will even perch on my finger. I hold out my hand and they come running and allow me to handle them and pick them up without any issues. They are by far the most curious things ever and we love them. We also adopted a "white and black speckled chicken" which I have yet to identify who is much more skittish and more aggressive. Hands down...Black Sex Links are the best so far! Am I the only one who feels this way?
