This is my gold sebright - 2 years old now. She's very friendly and has been a very hardy breed. Gets along well with all my other chickens. She was an addition last October after being the lone survivor of 2 fox attacks.
I would suggest Silkies. Not only are they adorable but they are very friendly, lay year round, are hardy, and are on the small size. I have 3 and they are the best! Believe it or not they love to cuddle! I wish you the best of luck
