    I have to tell you that the way you wrote that is majorly irritating. [​IMG]

    My favorite is the Barred Plymouth Rock. Friendly, curious, intelligent and great layers.

    I would Say Cochins they are very appealing and friendly. I wish mine would stop being broody though. Javas are great too [​IMG]

    Standard partridge cochins. The are big, gentle giants. Act very calm no matter what is going on in the barnyard and move slow... sorta like me. [​IMG]

    I'm new to chickens and only have experience with barred rocks, NH Reds, and EEs. Out of the three breeds my favorite is barred rocks.

    I like Barred Rocks a lot, but I am also partial to bantam Cochins. They seem to be good broodies.

    I have Delaware Blue Hens and they are flighty, but they are also friendly and curious. Nothing like a small chicken flying out of nowhere at 8' high and landing on your shoulder!

    My 1st choice would have to be Faverolles they are sweet and docile. I also like bearded birds to that has something to do with my preference.
