    Well, I think I have a couple of different favorite chickens. There is the egg layer, my fav. in that area would be the, hmmm, two actually..my Little Red..sex link, and Miss Piggy, my white leghorn.

    In bantams...love, love, the cochins. I have a mottled cochin bantam..Baily..too cute, and they lay a nice size egg.

    Pretty birds? The Ameraucana..blue or lavender! I have a blue, and a little lavender pullet.

    I like Silkies, Polish and just about any breed of Bantam. However, I don't own any of these breeds at this time. Go figure!

    I think my all time favorite is the bantam brahma, my sig pic has a buff brahma bantam shown. There are many varieties of the brahma, and in my experience, they are all very sweet and easy to raise birds.

    Oh bantie, you bird is so pretty. I've also wondered about those bantam brahmas'. I can see them being a sweeter bantam also...like the cochins.

    AnimalLady. Do you have pictures somewhere on your computer? Of your chickens? If so, it's easy. Just go to the area here that has the smiley face in it..go to the first colored little square box. Click on it, it will say browse. It should take you to where ever you have pictures.
    I the meantime, just tell us your favorite bird..must be Silkies. :))
