I chose my chicks based on gentle behavior first. However I didnt really expect this. I have several different types including 8 fluffy buff orpingtons. All the Orps are nice. However theres one girl who is about the nicest chicken Ive ever seen!!! When you pick up some of the others they squawk and catwall. But Sweet pee as Ive named her is very quiet and gentle. You pick her up and she makes no noise. You run your hand from her head to her tail and she does nothing more than a little quiet peeping. She closes her eyes almost like a contented dog!!! I never knew chickens were like this! Her she is sitting on my leg as I typed this!
