    I'm a little biased, but I have Bantam Phoenixes, too. I raised them from chicks, so they are really docile to me. I think it's all in how you raise them, IMO.

    Silkies, cochins, d'uccles, and faverolles all have pretty mellow, docile, gentle personalities. [​IMG]

    I've also found that, if raised around people, old english game bantams and seramas are very personable, outgoing, and love socializing with people. They're also a good size for children to handle.
