    I would just like to get your opinions on what breed you consider to be the friendliest breed. I know for the most part, it's all in how we raise them. I have several breeds, but it seems once they mature, they become extremely independant and could really care less about their human care takers. I am extremely good to my girls and pay so much attention to them! I would like some friendly chickens!! So, what do you think is the friendliest breed?

    My girls are only five months old, but I have twelve different breeds. I think my sweetest bird is my sussex. I think next is my marans.

    Hmmm...I don't have any of those breeds! I will have to research them for next spring! Thanks!! I have RIR, BO, white rocks, 1 polish white crested, and a few mixed. My polish and white rocks are pretty friendly, but they are still young. I guess i will have to wait and see!

    Well it looks like you're looking for egg layers, then Australorps!!! [​IMG]

    But if you just want a chicken buddy, then Seramas for sure.... Even the roosters are so darn cute!
