    I have Golden and Silver Sebrights they're very good with people, and a Modern Game Splash rooster who is a year old and does very well with people.

    I agree on the Golden Sebrights, and also silkies have a nice temperament. I've also heard that cochins are nice too.

    Message about Wyandotte bantams being the best should just be pinned at the top. So any question on positive attributes to bantams would have the answer.....Wyandottes. [​IMG]

    Best colors would be partridge or wheaten....[​IMG]

    Oh, come on now..cochins???? The roosters act like hens with the chicks, the hens aren't very aggressive around predators, and lay 24 eggs and go broody. I actually love cochin bantams.

    Jap's, 1/2 of the offspring are long legged and therefore culls. Do like good ones tho.
