    I have only had my chickens for 16 weeks, but out of my RIR's, BA's, and Dark Brahma's, The Dark Brahmas are my favorites. They are SO nice and will fall asleep on your lap, while the others hate being touched.

    Hi from Ga. I'm an Orpington person all the way. Last Sat. I got to hold a chocolate Orpington Bantam. It is by far the prettiest chicken I've ever seen. NPIP Ga.-1211:)

    My favorite would be EEs, but I've never had one. I love white leghorns.

    I adore my Buckeye! I only have one and she is by far my favorite. She is hilarious, so full of personality. She "sings" all day, comes running towards me and squats until I pet her, and chases the cat around the yard. They all free range, and she is always way far away from the others, doin' her thing. I don't think she is even part of the pecking order, no one picks on her and she doesn't pick on anyone else. It's like the cool kid at school... [​IMG]
