Pros: No better broody hen out there, naturally friendly
Cons: Need their own individual penning arrangements
I can pick any random chicken out of my asil flock and take it to a agro-tourism event, educational function or a petting zoo, etc. and sit it on a perch or in my lap where hundreds of people walk by and pet it and it will set there and beg to be petted, with zero prior conditioning, any bird in the flock. Perfectly content to be the only chicken there. Love human interaction. They are game, they need their own pen, even the hens. Excellent broody hens that lay more eggs than some sources would have you believe. While slow growing, they are very meaty and taste excellent. It is surprising how heavy they are. Easy to see where the Cornish got their breast if you ever look at a dressed asil. Very special birds.
