Hello all - I am new to chickens and have become crazed. I have been reading and researching and have gotten about 30 back issues of Backyard Poultry from a friend . I have gone to auctions - fairs etc. I have my search narrowed down to Favorelles- Brahmas- Dorkings- And orpingtons. Space wil lnot be an issue - but i want a gentle - docile- friendlier chicken. Something that is good for a newbie to care for. With that said my best friend has had chickens all his life ( he has Japanese Fantails and Cochins)so i have a good source of knowledge there - Any advise - comments - suggestions would be great. I do love some of the bantams D'Uccles and D'anvers - but am afraid that they would not be good for an inexperienced "Dad" Thanks in advance for your help!
