Pros: Good layers, get along pretty well in flock, friendly, beautiful
Cons: None I can think of
I don't have the partridge, but I do have the blue and Columbian varieties. I love these birds! Definitely one of my favorite breeds. They're good layers of pretty decent sized eggs for a bantam. They're friendly enough. Mine don't care to be picked up, but will settle once I do. I think that's more my fault than the bird's, as I did handle them when they were young, but didn't keep up with it...pretty much all of the breeds I have are like that. Good with kids. Inquisitive. Get along pretty well with others in the flock...they can be a bit bossy at times, but they're not bad about it. They're absolutely beautiful in my opinion...love the curvy shape of their bodies and love those fluffy little butts!
For as long as I keep chickens, I will always have this breed!
I'd love to have the partridge some day. :)
