    Which is the friendliest out of Brahma, EE, Australorp? I'm ordering all three, but not sure on how many numbers of each yet. [​IMG]
    Share pictures if you have them, I enjoy seeing them. Especially with Winter coming, it's fun to see the cheerful photos.

    I've had EEs and Australorps, not Brahmas. But that's only because I just haven't gotten them yet. [​IMG] Out of those 2, so far the EEs have been friendlier, but some of the Australorps were rather sweet.

    EEs:

    The one Australorp that I still have (she's 6 1/2, queen of the coop):

    I like the one of the Australorp standing tall; very cool. I will be taking lots of pictures when I get them!!

    My EEs at sort of standoffish. I haven't had the other breeds.

    That is one pretty EE I love the white and black or silver and black. Also, that BA hen is hot, don't let "DUNDEE" see her. As for the friendliest question, my BA's are my friendliest in my flock by far!!!

    Quote:[​IMG] I'll tell her in the morning. Do you think she should see Dundee? If he's the roo in your avatar... [​IMG]

    And Iris is black and white. From what I can tell she's one of the rarer female colors EEs have.

    Thank you all for the comments. [​IMG]

    I've had all of these at one time or other.
    I think alot of how they act and the friendliness depends on the way you raise them and how much you are around them.
    I currently have EE's and they are fairly friendly, not really skittish unless you are trying to catch them, most chickens don't care to be caught.

    I have EE and this is what i experienced...The first two EE we owned hated to be caught and werent too keen on being held...then the two we own now are sweethearts...I would have to agree with Draye that it all depends on how you raise them
