    ok so my mom wnts more chickies but we need to know the most popular kind. We want it to be where the roosters are more popular then the hens. Like the phoenix or yokoma's.

    I told her serama's. We got silkies and we have barred rocks. The roosters cant be loud and annoying when they crow.

    Any suggestions?

    I think since Buff Orpingtons are so sweet, the bantams must be too. I have 6 ameraucana bantams less than 2 weeks old. When i ordered i asked if they had the buff's but they did not. If i had an opportunity, i would get a couple of them.

    My first choice last yr ws cochins. That was before the silkies.

    1- buff orph

    1- cochin


    Remember they have to be low crowers. I want to make sure that I dont get robbed again (I have silkie roosters that no one wants and they are supposed to be popular.)
