    Hi y'all!! My name is Aj. I joined this site to learn all I can about chickens..I love the animals and I am gonna buy some chicks here soon. So I am looking to learn about different types of chickens and what type would be good to raise. I have four children and would like to know if some breeds are more social than others...can't wait to learn all I can about raising these beautiful animals :)

    Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! Here are a couple of links to some nice chicken breed comparison charts you might like http://www.sagehenfarmlodi.com/chooks/chooks.html and http://www.albc-usa.org/documents/chickenbreedcomparison.pdf and http://www.mypetchicken.com/chicken-breeds/breed-list.aspx
    when you have narrowed down your choices, don't forget to check the BYC Reviews section for member reviews on the different breeds. https://www.backyardchickens.com/products/category/chicken-breeds For pets,especially for children, Silkies and Cochins are probably the two most popular breeds, they are not very good egg layers but are very friendly. So far as more layer breeds Orpingtons are quite popular as pets, some others are Australorps, Plymouth Rocks, Sussex, Delaware, Easter Eggers and Wyandottes.
