    Simple question.

    I sure have a favorite!
    Buffin, my MPC Buff Orpington.
    She's the best chicken I have out of my 28, and the only tame one.
    She jumps in my lap and rubs on my leg like a cat. She's even friendly to strangers!
    When I first got them as chicks, the first time I saw them, she walked right up to me and started peeping and didn't stop till I picked her up. While all the others just hid in the corner. She's also my roo's favorite hen to try and breed, and my Red Star's best friend.
    Anyway here she is:

    I love all of my chickens in a different way cuz they are all so different but I'm really attached to my rooster.
    He's a bantam cochin and ever sine he was 5 weeks old he HAD to snuggle with me at dusk before he went to bed with the girls. He persists to jump on my back, shoulder, head, arm, anything as long as it's on me. Oh, and I have to hold him close to me too.
    He's a year now and he STILL does this. If I'm outside of the run and it's dusk he will literally try to get THROUGH the chicken wire to me! So I guess it's only normal you get attached to a chicken like that, huh.. [​IMG]

    Your buff orpington sounds really sweet. [​IMG] I have one chick that loooves snuggles too. She's starting to grow on me as well. [​IMG] She's a silkie cochin cross, my rooster's daughter.

    Lets here her story!

    My favorite is my BR with the floppy comb, but that is only because she is a really good roach killer!!!!

    I have a BR with a up-side-down toe!!! I wonder if it is a BR thing to have weird toes!
