Your friends are:

different types of birds

You can meet my small friend at -1.
You can meet my American friend at -2.
You can meet my very rare friend at -3.

The first three hints are golf scores:
-1 = Birdie
-2 = Eagle (American Eagle)
-3 = Albatros (only 18 players managed to do this in the history of golf)

One of my friends is quite silly.
One of my friends is very proud.
One of my friends is usually preferred warm, but the opposite is sometimes necessary.
One of my friends sometimes sits, but then bad things happen to him.
But do not be afraid or you might end up like my silly friend.

The rest are idioms: Silly goose
Proud as a peacock
Turkey (preferred hot on Christmas, cold turkey is the opposite)
Sitting duck
If you're afraid, you might get goose bumps.

  • $\begingroup$ silly might be for chicken, silly chicken is a recipe. Also afraid corresponds to chicken, as in 'chicken out'. $\endgroup$ – uptoNoGood Dec 19 '16 at 9:46
  • $\begingroup$ Silly goose is the correct idiom. Also sorry about the last one. it is not a bird but an extra hint for the silly bird. $\endgroup$ – stack reader Dec 19 '16 at 10:18
  • $\begingroup$ the last hint was goose bumps by the way. $\endgroup$ – stack reader Dec 19 '16 at 15:27
