    One of the new members in her introduction said she'd be minding her grandson's favourite chicken and it got me wondering whether others have favourites. I don't think I do, I like all of mine, nobody really stands out as "special". So, do you have a favourite?

    .[​IMG]This is my favorite chicken because she is always the one who insists on sitting on my lap.

    Here's my favorite chicken. Her name is lady.

    She's probably my favorite because she is calmest. Also she is my only hen ever to go broody.

    She is currently sitting on eggs for me.

    Frack, the spoiled one. She is now close to 10 years old and doesn't lay eggs in our bed anymore, but she has always been the favorite. She went broody once and hatched her babies in our kitchen! She knows her name and has never left a "present" on the floor in the house.

    I have two favorites....

    Emma, my 8yr old EE hen. She is queen of the flock and she knows it! She is very tame and cuddly, and will do anything for a strawberry top.

    And Jace, (I thought she was a rooster, I do call her Jacie) who is just the sweetest thing. She is a 1yr old Spangled OEGB and loves to cuddle..... At least when she is not broody! As of now, she is raising her first batch and doing wonderfully.

    In the winter she follows me around until I pick her up and warm her feet. She is my spoiled girl. [​IMG]

    I got her, a bantam, a Deleware, and a Polish chick along with two Khaki Campbell ducklings back in Feb. The three other chicks sadly didn't make it to adulthood and I ended up putting her in the brooder with the ducklings. She has stuck with them ever since, even after I added two more ducks. She also likes to follow me around and will jump into my lap if I sit down.
