    [​IMG] chickens are flock animals and do much better with a buddy or two. Is there a possibility that you would get more than one?
     
  5. X2. Chickens are social, flock animals. I wouldn't suggest a lone chicken.

    On your question I suggest bantam cochins. Very sweet birds, cold hardy.

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    Google the Henderson Chicken Chart for breed information. I agree that birds do better when kept with others.
