    OK, my only experience with chickens is with Bantams, and sooo...


    Bantam Breeds
    1. Cochins
    Why? Beacause they are SO nice and mellow for my kids
    2. D'Uccles
    Why? Because they are beautiful and we really hope they will be as nice as the Cochins!
    3. These 2, and Brahmas, have been the only breeds that I have personal experience with, and the Brahmas were more high strung and not nearly as appreciative of being held, so they didn't even qualify for #3 status!
