    I may decide I want a roo for my girls, but I need a good breed that is friendly... well, at least not known to be super mean.

    Silkies and Buff Orpingtons are good, I have a silkie and he gets mad if I don't give him attention and crows whenever I walk by the coop!:D

    I like him as much as my cats and dogs, he's a sweetie but still protective of his girls (which is what I was hoping for lol)
