    I was out in the coop just now feeding, watering, getting ready for the night and stuff; when I looked around and thought how cool chickens were.

    Standing there, I was trying to pick my favorite type I had. I whittled it down to two: my Dark Brahma Sandy and my Buff Orppy Sweetie Pie.

    Sandy just looks like a chicken built for the cold. When I walked in and she was sitting on a upside down bucket fluffed out to about twice her normal size. She's a big chickie to begin with, but she looks turkey-like when she does that!!!

    What's your favorite kind of chickiepoo?

    Sorry, somebody was bound to say it.... might as well be me.

    Seriously, I can't narrow it down. I have at about 20 breeds a more on the way.

    My very favorite is the one who needs you most at that very moment. Just like human babies. The one who's cuddley that day. Or talks to you...or hops on your shoulder. My buff orp has been on the top of my list, but recently my blue sumatra has been fighting for top honor. She thinks I'm her new best friend and wants to be on my arm. They're all my faves [​IMG]

    I don't know... For looks, then blue laced red wyandottes(which I don't have but want really bad!!).
    For personality, then Welsummers, or Cochins.
    For a combo of both, then Cochin Frizzles take the cake.
    But all fuzzybutts are amazing (except for silver americauna roos; for some reason these beautiful birds always turn against humans and end up in the pot.)
