I wonder how many of us have been thru the "must have some of these and some of those" and feel that Heritage breeds is where you'll end up at some point? I guess I've lately been enjoying a few BO's and a few Speckled Sussex, and my Jerseys and they are just so friendly and follow me around and want to know what I'm doing and hang out and nap if I sit outside. And that's behavior with no treat involved. My BR's have always been nosy and entertaining. I feel they get more attached to me than others (mostly). I am not knocking other breeds-I have wonderful chickens. But I guess Lately I've started to ponder why these old breeds have remained so popular for years.
