    Salmon Faverolles are beautiful and sweetly tempered.

    Quote:Silkies - beware they're addictive and they plan to take over the world.

    And Buff Orpingtons or Blue orpingtons, but get a few orps to try. From a good source they're very sweet birds.

    Orpingtons! They are super friendly, calm, and gorgeous chickens. The blue's are my absolute favorite! [​IMG]
