    I've heard that Buffs and Pilgrims are two of the friendliest.

    I've had chinese, pilgrim and tufted roman and sebastropol. We ended up having a tufted roman , \\pilgrim cross who was very friendly (buddies with the dog too). I got rid of the chinese, because they were too noisy for me. The sebastrolpols I sold.
    I found the tufted roman and pilgrims very gentle and quiet.
    Right now I am into geese after 12 years again and I have four Tufted Buffs I got from Metzger. Presently they live in my garage, while building their aviary. Very gentle, they follow me outside and sit by me. I have spent some time watching and talking to them and I carry them to the grass yard daily. I did not totally imprint them , because I wanted them to be comfortable without me. They diffinently run to me when afraid if I am in the yard. I got them because I wanted more color and didn't want all the white feathers all over the yard:D
