Okay, so my coop is built (mostly) and I have my new Meyers catalog and on Monday Im ready to order a mix of a whole bunch of different breeds of chicks. I want one rooster because come spring a year from now I want to let a couple of hens go broody and get myself a whole bunch of mixed breed chickens. So I would be interested in anyones opinion as to which has the best temperament, is less noisy, most attractive and generally the easiest to live with. Choices are Wyandotte, Welsummer, Americana (yeah I know If it comes from a hatchery its an Easter Egger. I may have heard that a couple of times ), Dominique, Golden Campine, Partridge Rock, Exchequer Leghorn or Golden Lakenvelder. I've been leaning toward the Americana---okay, to keep the peace--- Easter Egger---but just wondered what thoughts/experiences others have had. Actually the only one I have completely ruled out is a Rhode Island Red. Had a long standing feud with one of those as a kid, the meanest chicken I ever knew. I know it's been asked a lot here but again, which is the best rooster?
