    What is a good breed that would get along well with an ameraucana hen? Particularly a friendly breed of chicken, since I like to handle them alot. Any advice?

    Most any breed, really. I keep a mixed flock and everyone gets along. You'll get as many opinions as there are users on here on what breed is the friendliest. It's just a matter of preference. Go to or Hendersons Chicken Chart look at the different breeds, find one (or several) that you like the look of and go from there.

    Some of my favorites are sex-links, RIR's, Barred Rocks, and Austalorps.
