One of the Barred Rocks that I bought 4 weeks ago turned out to be a roo. I live in the city limits and I can't have a rooster due to noise ordinances. The lady that I purchased it from agreed to let me swap it for another chick. I have the choice of getting an Ameraucana, barred rock, production red or silkie. I was thinking of getting an Ameraucana and another silkie to keep it company in the brooder. Besides the Rock roo that we are returning, we have a Production Red, Silkie, Serama and Barred Rock, hopefully all pullets. I'll get to the point- What is the temperment of Ameraucana chickens? I have 3 kids from age 3-7, so they need to be kid friendly.
