    Hi, my name is Kelsey. I don't have any chickens yet but around April we should be able to get them from the amazing Cackle Hatchery. I plan on getting New Hampshires, White Wyns., Partridge Rock, and the Silver Laced Wyn.
    I would like to know if there are any suggestions out there for me. This is the first time I will have chickens, and I did some research but they don't really talk about the chikens dispositions. I would like for each of them to be friendly and not wild.
    I've heard chickens can be as loyal as dogs is this true?
    Anyway I also wanted to meet new friendly people on here, and so far this has been my favorite website.

    Some of my hobbies are hiking, bikeing, walking my dog, school, school, and more school, and watching my favorite show LOST:D

    Glad to have you here! [​IMG]

    If you're interested in learning about breed behavior/disposition, you can do a search in the Breeds area of the forum for threads and posts about the breeds you're interested in.

    Henderson's chart is another great resource.
