    If you were a chicken what breed would you be? I used Henderson's The ICYouSee Handy-Dandy Chicken Chart.

    I think I would be a Fayoumi rooster. "very economical eater; does not like containment; lively; flighty, known for wildness"

    Bantam Cochin: robust, cold hardy, slow to mature, well adaptable to confinement or free range; peaceful, friendly, easily "handled"
    (I got to admit being more then a little gullible).

    I think I am a Wyandotte: "well adaptable to confinement or free range; calm, industrious [me at work [​IMG] ], usually docile, but can be aggressive [; some are aloof, others friendly." Also, they're supposed to be a cold-hardy breed, and I love the winter!

    Barred Rock...black and white clothes are all i wear. throw in a little pink or green, but in moderation only!

    broods, but infrequently; good mother robust; very cold hardy somewhat early maturing

    i have three kids and i am a good mom! robust...sometimes! early maturing, yep. cold hardy because i have a fireplace![​IMG]

    well adaptable to confinement or free range; docile, friendly, easily handled

    that's me, at home wherever i am. i am uber easy going and i love making friends. easily handled, ask DH. he'll tell you i am as long as i get my way![​IMG]
