    Any ideas on the absolute BEST chicken breed(s)?!
    Please reply from you own experience!
    I am looking for suggestions, status, egg production (from personal experience), most tame, most calm, most child-approved, best mother, most broody, and finally, the most lovely!
    I am a chicken L-O-V-E-R, not the kind that just say they are, but I am! Ask my family [​IMG]

    For docile, friendly, broody breeds, you can't beat Cochins, Brahmas, Bantam Cochins, or Silkies. None are great egg producers, but they're OK.

    Black Sex Links, New Hampshires, and Delawares aren't broody, but they're friendly and great layers.
