I am going to head over to the feed store sometime soon and get some chicks, and was wondering if anybody had any recommendations. I have 2 3 year olds and a 5 year old, and was hoping to get some pretty mellow chickens that could tolerate petting without too much trouble. I can't have too many chickens so it would be nice to have some chickens that lay decently, but the most important thing is that the chickens are pretty docile. I was also wondering if anybody would recommend bantams over standards? A friend of mine has chickens and hers seem HUGE. Like turkeys or something. Well not really, but they are BIG. I don't want them too scare the kids... Anyways, if anyone could help that would be great!
