    Blue Andalusians, I have chicks that are very active. And the blues are so pretty. I got splash and black in my hatch also I can't wait to see how they turn out.

    I love my Cochins. They are very sweet and stable birds. The one thing I don't like about them is the feathered feet getting nasty in bad weather since mine all free range. They have been good broody hens and the roos are nice boys.
    I have Salmon Faverolles as chicks right now. They aren't as friendly and outgoing as the Black Jersey Giants or the Barred Rock chicks but then neither are the buff Orps that everyone said were nice.
    And my Silkies I wouldn't trade for nuthin'! They are so absolutely cuddly as chicks I can't wait till they are grown to see them strut around. And I really just got them to make sure I had some broodies for next spring.
    But to each his own.
