    Okay so I am hooked and sticking with the Marans, my daughter wants to pick up and love all the chickies and, of course, they want nothing to do with her, so my husband has promised her she can have her very own flock of Banties... what is the most kid friendly banty breed? Which breed do you have, what is your experience, etc. Thanks!

    I would suggest Silkie Bantams They're cute and fluffy
    and docile. And very broody .

    I've been told that Silkies are the "friendlyest" breed. But I must say that I've spoiled my Black Copper Marans rotten by giving the raisins as a treat. Now they come running to me when I come up.

    My seramas have been the tamest with the least amount of taming. My silkies have taken much more taming and they still won't even eat out of my hand.
