    Our silver polish is very calm ( maybe because he can't see, his crest feathers hang in front of his eyes!) He will even fall asleep in your arms!

    My Orps are especially nice. I have 3 Orp roos (one buff, one black and one splash) and they are really docile. Salmon Faverolles are really laid back too.

    My Orps, Brahmas, Wyandottes have been great. I never keep a mean roo. My chantecler cockerels have always been sort of neurotic and flighty. My std Cochins were always very docile.

    For treating other roos well, so far I vote for Welsummer.

    My dark brahma roo is very mellow, but also very watchful of what's going on around him.
