I actually raised this chicken from the egg. He thought I was his mother, and he lived in the house until he got too big. I grew up around chickens and have had them most my life. I feel like the Rhode Island Reds are good solid chickens and pretty to look at. I love all kinds of chicken breeds, though, so it's tough to pick just one!
If you handle your chickens when they are little, they will remain friendly, which makes gathering eggs easier. Hens can be a little aggressive, so make friends with your chickens. :) Fresh eggs are always a bonus. I can't wait to have chickens again.
