    That's why I keep my boys indoor. The Aseels make great pets and are not mean to people. I keep a group of females (8 of them) with rest of the flock and they all are high in the pecking order. Even my mean RIR Rooster leaves them alone after he got a good "disciplining action" from them for pecking on their chicks.

    Thank you so much, these abbreviations always get me off-guard. I wonder why people got so lazy?

    I don't care much about my leghorn hens being skittish and the Roose being nervous wreck, because I want them to perform their duties, that is to lay eggs and mate. The cockerels are a different story, they give me hard time when I caponize them and the capons are only slightly plump than their parents. But I eat them anyway I don't like freeloaders on my farm.

    I'm told Asel Cocks are good with humans and defencive of Hens. I would like that, but I would like to have maybe more than one Cock. So I am unlikely to have an Asel.

    Your birds are so handsome & it's nice that you feel like your Grandfather is with you. One of the things that I loved best about Hawai'i was all of the chickens running around! Imagine my delight at the Maui airport watching chickens walk wherever they wanted! And to see them again all over Kauai...well it was fantastic! The islands are a paradise, sure, but chickens EVERYWHERE is what makes it heavenly!

    A little hen & her rooster befriended us while we were there & part of me wanted to tuck them into a doggie travel bag & take them home the other, sanep partof me asked "why take a chicken from Heaven?"

    Ugh I extremely dislike any kind of leghorn other than the Red variety. Brown and Pearl are way too flighty and Silver is in the middle, but my Reds are super sweet and love attention. (this is based off personal experience)

    Any kind of pure white I would rather not own due to them looking pretty until they get dirty. Where I live, any kind of white chicken will turn red due to the soil. I have 4 mostly white chickens and the two older ones are so dirty; the younger ones are still clean. They are also very easy for predators to spot. If I had a choice when I got them, I would not have picked them out. (I will admit that I love how shiny white chickens are and I really wish I could have some)

    My 2 meanest breeds are barred rocks and silver lace wyandottes. I don't think I'll ever get more.
