    Well, chickens are very social animals, so it might turn out better if you get two. And, I would get 2 silkie bantams. They are very motherly, tame, and very, very sweet towards their owners! GOOD LUCK!!! [​IMG]

    Well everybudy tells me 2 chickens, (even mixed breeds) would make much better results, becuase chickens are really social animals. . .
