    I always hear about "dog people' and "cat people". I know some people prefer one over the other but while I grew up with a large number of animals of differentiate species I find I like dogs, cats, and horses equally.

    I love my chickens but they are not as high on my "list" as the other three.

    Sheep and cows are on the same level as chickens and then after that are rabbits. I like rabbits ok, they're soft and quiet animals but I think my chickens have more personality.

    So of the domesticated , pets, or farm animals what do you like best. Are you a chicken person? a duck person? a dog person? a bunny person?

    If they are actually domesticated, I like people better than any animal. Those feral ones can be rough, though.

    duck, chicken, cat, in that order. Maybe a very well mannered dog can get on the list!

    My whole life I have been a dog person but over the last few years has changed and now most definitely a cat person, but I do like horses a lot, just don't have any!

    Quote:that sounds cute. i keep hearing neat things about rabbits but my experience with them is that they eat and poop and simply tolerate being held. maybe i'm just not good at reading "rabbit language"

    My fav would have to be dogs , then my chickens. I used to be a people person but the older I get the more I like my critters. They are more well mannered than most people. The dogs place is on the floor , toilet outside, take treats nicely , & in general know how to act.

    Actually, I'm a parrot person. I love my pet birds and are constantly encourage young and up-coming vets to take courses to learn how to care for them.
