Laidback chicks

Worried about how well your hens will adapt to their environment or interact with people? 

Docility is a major consideration for urban chicken farmers who live in close quarters or who have children. Luckily, there are several breeds recommended for their laidback, lovable tendancies. 

Cochins (pictured) are generally considered to be the most docile breed around — they don't mind being handled and don't make a fuss over their environment, whether they live free-range or in a more confined coop. 

They're an all-around excellent companion for avian enthusiasts. 

Some other docile breeds include Plymouth Rocks, Orpingtons, Rhode-Island Reds and Brahmas.
