I have never bred chickens before, but I have an EE that I just love. She is the sweetest thing. It got me thinking, breed aside, (because I know that EEs are pretty sweet birds) do hens/roosters pass along their personality traits? Such as a really sweet hen/rooster could have chicks with the same sweet disposition, or a really mean hen/rooster will have some mean nasty little chicks? I realize that there are some breeds that are just more friendly than others, but is it possible to breed "niceness" ( or mean-ness) into chicks, regardless of breed? Just curious. Thanks!
