My lavender bantam Ameraucana hen has a very docile temperament. I have taken her to the public library for story time. She calmly sits on my lap and coos while the toddlers pet her. I let her free range when we are outside doing yard work and we can monitor for predators. She follows us around like a shadow and she loves to eat the bugs! A picture of her at three-months-old is my avatar. Two OEGB (one dun & one gold) pullets are her companions. I also have some indoor house chickens: a pair of Seramas. They are my favorite plumage color: chocolate!!! 2010 cock. He was in moult when the photo was taken, so he looks ragged. 2010 hen.
