I want to know this becuase i want to know what to stay away from when i get my new chickens
none of the chickens are hard to raise but you have to watch for disease but the rarest are the ones you want to find because people want the rare ones and will pay alot more for them
I have really not found 1 breed harder than another to raise, but some are friendlier than others. Like OEGs (old english game) are nice, but the roosters with fight with my other chickens. Sebrights and Hamburgs are both flighty birds and the roosters will attack you. Leghorns can also be flighty. Here is a chart that might help you- http://www.ithaca.edu/staff/jhenderson/chooks/chooks.html It tells you if they're friendly, rare, etc.
Some breeds do carry lethal genes. Japanese is one breed. Think the tuff birds are another. Some white Wyandotte. If both the parents carry the lethal genes,then 25% of the chicks will die, in the hatching stage or soon after hatching.
I hear that andalusians can be flighty... don't know.
