    Please do NOT mention what type/breed of chicken you don't like. I don't want to offend anybody. But I'm just curious if most chicken lovers appreciate all breeds. Myself, I have definite preferences, and there are certain breeds I would rather not own--for cosmetic reasons. I wondered if I'm in the minority.

    I definitely have preferences, some chickens just look silly.

    I like most, but have chosen to buy the ones I personally think are cute! [​IMG]

    I love em all. I could care less how they look, they are just amazing animals. I actually prefer the weird ones, and a large portion of my flock is Naked Necks! They've got to be one of my most favorite breed of chicken, but I do love them all. I love Muscovies too, and I know a few people that are disgusted by them. [​IMG]

    But then again, I love ALL animals,lol. Including Snakes and Spiders. [​IMG]

    I'm sorry but, some chickens look ridiculus but, if they have a good personality thats all that matters to me.

    I probably wouldn't get chickens if there were only *certain* breeds. [​IMG] Yeah, I like some better than others!

    I love them all except for a couple, for which I wonder: Why would anyone ever want to purposely breed something to look like THAT?

    But to each their own. [​IMG]
