    No feathered feet - too much potential for problems. Fifth toe - just don't like the look. :idunno I favor birds with flowing lines, Mediterranean breeds - leghorns in particular - also American game fowl.

    I don't like Cochins and other overly fluffy birds like them, I don't know why. I've always liked Nankins and Dutchlike birds better.

    One of my rocks is an egg pecker, almost every other day I collect at least one egg with a peck hole in it. I have glass eggs or golf balls in all nesting boxes but nothing seems to deter the heifer. Other than that we love our rocks as they were our first.

    Welsummers are a fantastically normal chicken. They aren't overly friendly or deliberately flighty and are consistent layers of gorgeous eggs.

    I don’t care too much for Seramas. They stand too upright for my liking.

    Old English Game Bantams would be a nice alternative. :love

    I won't say I dislike a breed...I will say there are several breeds that don't for my flock.
    I have had bad experiences with EE, Wyandotte, BR, Silkies, BSL and partridge rock.

    I do like my cochins, brahmas, Australorp and orpingtons. :D


    Corrected BEL SHOULD have read BSL.

    :rolleyes:
    It is me not catching that autocorrect has been drinking.

    I typed B S L. :p

    There are actually 2 in my coop now that the dominant Australorp is keeping in line. So far I don't completely dislike those 2.
