    Which breed would you recommend? I am looking for one that is very friendly, and has a relatively good egg laying capacity.

    I have it narrowed down to these 2 breeds, and I am going to pick one of them.

    Also, how do you feel about Easter Eggers? Do they meet these criteria?

    I've never had any Faverolle's, but I like my SS a lot.

    I haven't had any SS (getting some very soon, though), but I do have a bantam SF roo...by far the sweetest chicken I've ever owned, hands down. The EEs I've had are friendly, but on their own terms.

    Go for all three. [​IMG]

    I've never had faverolles, but they are attractive birds and I've heard good things about them.

    I love my SS. They are inquisitive, friendly, attractive girls. Mine are just starting to lay, so I can't give a good report on laying ability yet.

    I also like my bantam ameraucanas a lot. I'm kind of sorry I don't have any LF ameraucanas or EEs.

    Get em all!

    OK, I think I will have to get all 3. You guys are the biggest bunch of enablers! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Any other input is appreciated.

    Do any of the birds that I listed actually like to be held?

    I have some Favs I hatched from eggs from Bantyman, I have standard and Bantam, they are both very sweet. My little Bantam , Sweet Pea, is very curious and runs to me when I am in the coop.
