    Light Brahma. Mine are very friendly, and the roos dont have a mean bone in their body.

    My light brahman roo is the most beautiful bird but he likes me and only me.... my BO gal is slightly stand-off-ish. I say light brahmas all the way!

    While you're at it, any thoughts on Light Brahmas vs. Cochins? Are their personalities about the same?

    I have both. Either will be great. Brahmas are my followers but the orps are my lap chickens.
