    Nicest as in nice looking or friendly? I love my Partridge Rock bantam (sweet, good egglayer, and good broody) , and my friend also got a Partridge Rock bantam there and it won best in show.

    I love my Sebrights. I have both colors. I also have a Porcelain that is the family pet. She is the best mother and very mild.

    [​IMG] If I had to chose I would say B.Cochins!

    They are all my lap chickens! Even though their eggs are suppose to be small I get eggs that average 1.6! ((Some of my big girls lay 2.1))

    i have sebrights and also white wyndottes. sebrights are my favorite. wyndottes seem pretty wild. i have one sebright hen that is a real nice chicken, she lets me pet her and when i open the cage she will come to the door and sit on the edge and wait for her feed. but i think they can be wild too. i think its the more you handle them they become more tame.

    If you ask 10 people for the best/favourite breed, you're likely to get 15-20 different answers [​IMG]
