    There are many breeds inclined to be friendly and seek attention - and many more that while often seen as "flighty" or "aloof" can often be very good pets when properly socialized from the start. You mention you want "more" - what breeds do you currently have? What characteristics besides personality are important -- egg color, production rate, color, pattern, feathered or bare legs, crested or not, etc?

    This is my first flock so I have limited experience but my Barred Rocks are so sweet with such big personalities.
