Hi Everyone! Thanks for having me. I've been wanting chickens my whole life and now at age 44 I am finally able to get a small flock of 5 birds! I cannot tell you how excited I am. I have been trying to dig up info on the temperament of the Ancona. Does anyone know if this would be a good beginner's bird? I love the size and looks of these birds but I am slightly concerned about info I have read that say they are nervous, avoid human contact, flighty, unfriendly....please let me know your experience with these guys. Thank you so much!
