    Unsure - I think while some breeds are friendlier than others, even within the same breed there is a lot of variability. I have three very friendly EEs and one that acts as if I chasing it with a hatchet! All were raised together as babies. I think lots of time and patience is the key. Good luck to you!

    Welcome to BYC. Lots of interaction with the chicks when you get them. Make it so that they associate you with feed. Food is the great equalizer in poultry/human interactions.
