Hmm good point but I want a small breed that cute like by cute I mean sweet and friendly and nice and doesn’t fly much because I have a small backyard
I highly suggest modern game bantams! They are small, super friendly/docile breed, and have such unique personalities! They also earn you a few questions/weird looks from visitors, who think they are dinosaurs :gig

A man after my own heart. Let's talk about cute chicks. 2 problems. What I think is cute, and what you think is cute, might be two different things. Second problem is the cutest ones almost always have some kind of drawback, to keep them from being perfect. Ever watch the movie Shallow Hal?
Anyway, for small, cute, friendly I think my first choice would be a sebright. Super cute, but super hard to find, and they fly like the mischief. Most of the birds do not fly well is because they are big. Hard to get all that weight off the ground. My choice here would be Wyandotte. Everything you're asking about, except they're going to weigh in at 7 to 8 lb roughly. So you're probably back to silkies. Not my cup of tea. But they certainly match all your requirements. Except I personally don't think they're especially cute. Come back anytime. I love talking about cute chicks.

Oooooh *internal groan* I have nothing nice to say about Sebrights save for looks.

They are actually easy to find. But they are the Devil reincarnated. Pure evil.

By far, the friendliest breed I've ever dealt with extensively is the belgian d'Uccle. Allow me to make my case.

There is not one breed I've met that can be tamed down so easily. I turned a Satan worshipping, neck breaking, panic inducing young cockerel into a calm, friendly, tolerant therapy bird in one day. One day. 4 hours of being coddled and one long nap later and he could be single handedly managed by a 5 yr old. He is now a beloved pet and provides emotional support for the child.

That cockerel's father was also a therapy bird and ambassador. I hand raised him and he was such a friendly man. Would fly up to me to be held. Would approach me with a simple call. He let people he never met approach and hold him. Small children handled him. He calmed children and disabled individuals.

A prior hen that I got as a 2yr old was used with disabled and special needs adults as a therapy bird as well. No training, nothing.

They keep easy. Indoors, outdoors. Free range, confined. Ration fed, ad libitum. No issues with obesity or malnutrition. No issues with dirty feathers or feet. Got along with any bird they were put with.


In my experience, you cannot find a breed that so consistently has good temperament and can tame down so easy.

Look into oriental games. Old English for example.
