I love when they sit on me. My barred rock is the friendliest with me out of all my girls. They all allow me to hold them and won’t run from me but barred rock is the one who will follow me whenever I go in the yard.So sad to hear that. I had a barrred rock years ago and she was a sweetheart - super nice personality, but then I suppose you can always get a bad chicken in any breed. I had sexlinks that were grouchy - never would let me get too near them. But then my one Rhode Island Red was a sweetheart - she'd always come and sit on my shoulder when I fed them. I love my Buff Orpingtons that I have right now. I inherited them from someone else after they were fully grown, but they have realy adapted well to me and are not at all skitish. I can't hold them but they'll eat out of my hand and will let me pet them when they are sitting on the roost (although that's probably because they aren't completely alert when they've been roosting).
