That looks like a Cochin, they're known for being docile if not friendly. Mine are actually very sociable and like being held and carried around. I have one that even likes to go for short rides in the truck with me. Yes, I'm that much of a chicken hugger.....sooooo ashamed, LOL!
Yeah that sounds right. If I ever get my own land where I can keep chickens, I'll definitely get some of those. My SIL's chickens are all bald from beating up on eachother, and not a little bald, like almost completely bald, and aggressive with people. They're like weird demon chickens.
RooManChoo is on the left, one of his "girls" on the right. Roo isn't quite as flashy as Rooster C, the Gangsta Roosta, but he's also still alive!
Rooster C, standing tall in the middle of some of his "girls", before his 'roopidity' forced his demise. It was a pity he got so agressive, he was a gorgeous feller. But, when he started running across an entire 5 acre pasture to attack me, that was pretty much the writing on the wall.
I had a neighbor that was bottle raising a litter of orphan kittens and her pet hen kept them warm. The only issue with them was that she bit the tail off of one of them. It didn't seem much worse for the wear. I guess she thought that the tail didn't belong there.
We're doing chicken math here.... Coyote came by and ate *one* chicken, so we had to get a replacement of course. How that translates into 4 baby chicks, well...
We lost a Production Red and gained a Black Sex Link, 2 Easter Eggers and a Blue Wyandotte.
Sooo, we currently have 1 Easter Egger (green eggs), a black Cochin, a partridge Cochin, a Rhode Island Red, 2 Buff Brahmas, a Cuckoo Maran, an Australorp, 1 Polish rooster, 2 Polish hens, a Frizzle, 1 Silky, 1 non-frizzled Frizzle, a Fleur De Uccle and a bantam Australorp in addition to the 4 baby chicks above.
Also have 3 turkeys which I *think* are 2 males and 1 female. Still very young.
