    If Y'all don't know, I'm Thigh-High in Chicken Math.
    I might be ordering from Meyer Hatchery. But if I did I could only get 4.
    I've picked out two already:Golden Laced Wyandotte, and a Buff Laced Polish
    But for my other two chicks, I want to pick from these breeds:
    Molted Ancona
    Silver Hamburg
    Speckled Sussex
    Salmon Faverolle
    Buff Orpington
    Partridge Rock
    Buff Brahma
    Rhode Island Red
    And a Buff Chancler.

    witch one(s) are the friendlest, and cold/heat hardest?

    I'm THIGH-HIGH DEEP IN CHICK MATH :barnie :rant

    I'd put the Brahma on that list. They're supposed to be very friendly and cold hardy!
  3. Speckled Sussex, Orpington or Brahma.....I have these breeds.....Very friendly Birds....

    I really really like all these other breeds, but I narrowed it down to four since I can get the other breeds next year.
    I narrowed down:
    Speckled Sussex
    Salmin Favwrolle
    Buff Orpington
    And Dominique.

    Now to choose just two....
  5. Speckled Sussex and the Orpington ......Mine are great and I do not handle my Birds or play with Chicks....My Sussex follows me around.....

    I Chooce but I'm not sure if ill be allowed to Get.......
    A Golden Laced Wyandotte!
    A Buff Laced Polish!
    A Speckled Sussex!
    And dude da duh da!....A Sillican Buttercup!I saw those and I fell in love!The speckles, the comb! :love I know!It wasn't even on my list!

  7. Just one thing to consider with getting a Polish sometimes the other Chickens will peck the feathers out of their heads.....I had a Polish in with my Flock once and its feathers were picked off its head.....It could happen?
    Also Polish are a bit more flighty than your other choices.....

    Best wishes though......I'm sure it will be fine.....

    Congrats and Cheers!...;)

    I have whit-Er, lets just say she a chicken, hehehe.She was supposed to be a white leghorn but its a long story, she's a bit flighty but she is so sweet and I've always wanted a Polish(maybe because I'm part Polish?:gig)

    My sweetest EEs beard is half picked of cause of being in a tight space when we had so much snow, but now they have a lot of space and her feathers are growing back in :woot

  9. Glad your aware of it then......

    Best wishes.....;)
