I'll admit that I am actually terrified of chickens. I am doing much better now, but I only have five very tame hens currently. My fear came from a Bantam rooster attack when I was two. My mom says I was lucky that I didn't lose an eye and I have a faded dime size red mark on my cheek bone to this day. Anyway, my husband really wanted to raise chickens for eggs and I chose Brahmas and Salmon Favorelles because they are supposed to be so docile. I used to have five SF roosters, but it got to the point where my husband would have to accompany me into the coop and we gave away four of the roosters to a hired man. The fifth rooster ended up getting eaten by a raccoon family but I'll post that story in another thread. So what drew you to your favorite chicken breed(s)?
