    Hi I’m new here! I’m looking to get chickens again after last ones got killed and I want a very kind snuggley chicken that loves me till death. Is that possible? I had a silkie and she was so snuggly I loved her. Her name was Coco Puff! If there is a chicken out there for me let me know! I have been thinking on a black astrolop.
     
  2. My ISA brown hens are absolutely the sweetest, they love human attention. One of them even loves car rides!
    My white crested blue polish hen is also super cuddly, my roosters not so much though.
    I've never had luck with silkies :barniethey've all been mean or skittish.

    My little D'Uccles are by far the most snuggly chickens I have ever had :love
    My little cockerel absolutely LOVES human time! He likes to lay in my lap and fall asleep and enjoys being held and pet. He is a good boy.

    I am new to this site as well. I have a buff orpington which just appeared at my house so is my only experience witb a chicken; however, she loves to sit on your lap and be loved on. She will stay for a long time just talking up a storm and loves being rubbed. From what I have read its typical of the breed.

    Hello, welcome to Backyard Chickens!:woot
    I agree with Cyprus that D'uccles are a very friendly breed. They are easily tamed and generally sweet natured. Red Sex Links are friendly too but are known for being short lived with a lifespan at about 2-3 years.

    Anyway, Hope you enjoy it here as much as we all do!

    Welcome to BYC. Silkies, Cochins, Seramas - all generally mellow and easily handled birds. For large fowl, cochins and Orpingtons along with Faverolles are generally mellow and easily handled.

    It's become a real issue for me! I walk outside to start working on some project and constantly find myself wandering over to watch or check on the chickens. It's pathetic!
