I'm a HUGE fan of the speckled sussex. I also have EEs that are super friendly. Crested breeds tend to be flighty. I have a cochin who enjoys being handled. That's about the extent of my experience. Edit: I just realized you said speckled star and sussex star. Not sure what those are exactly? But my sussex mixed breeds are stunning, so I guess I'm a fan of them too. I have two light brahma chicks, but they're only a few weeks old.
