I see a very distinct difference in friendliness between certain breeds. My two LIght Brahmas are so very friendly, they run right up to me, and very readily allow me to pet them or pick them up, though once picked up they tend to squirm, unless I hold them loosely and pet them gently. They are the most likely of my hens to hop up on me, too, when I go in the coop. After them, next in friendliness, come the Rhode Island Red and the Buff Orpington, which are not quite as bold, but also tolerate being petted and picked up fairly well. But always more at a distance are the 4 Silver Laced Wyandottes, stand-offish, they like to be 2 to 3 feet away from where I am. Near enough to grab morsels I might hand out, but not near enough to get petted or picked up. Anyone else have comments on their experience with more friendly versus more cautious/distant breeds?
