As the title says, are phoenix breeds of chickens loving/affectionate? I currently have one, and she's almost 2 months since this thread was posted, and I haven't snapped any recent photos yet. She is about 5 weeks old in the photo below: I've spent plenty of time with her when my chick was a few days old from a hatchery. She'll follow me around, though not a lot. When she's older, I moved her outside. My pullet didn't really want me touching her, and gets nervous when I hold her. Is there any determining factor affecting my chicken's kinship? Could it be the breed? How I raised my chicken? I've heard that phoenixes aren't that friendly of a chicken, though, I'm in heavy doubt. Thanks in advance! I appreciate your help.
