So I ordered 3 breeds of chickadee's and out of those three I have come to learn and love the distinct differences in their personalities. Barred Rock: By far the smartest and most friendly out of the bunch. They jump up on me, follow me, and even roost on my knee if i sit in there long enough late enough. Black Australorp: Not As friendly as the Barred Rock, but they always know when you have the food. They can FLY! They're skittish but will come up if he Barred Rocks have already deemed me safe. Light Bramaha: Very skittish, very cute! They won't come up to me and they won't eat from my hand but they will wait until someone else gets a treat and steal it from them and then do an excited dance and song. It's cute and they're pretty but not human sociable. Always the ones to get everyone riled up squaking and running. This is just what I have observed in the last 3 months, I LOVE my barred rocks for pals and I think I could probably use a skittish bird for meat as well if I wanted. I don't really feel attatchment to the Australorps or the Bramaha, they both fear me. Maybe things will change once they start laying who knows, but this is just what I've seen.
