Pros: Good layer, great pesonality, docile and smart!

Cons: Can be timid and easily spooked

She never laid for me last year, but started up Jan/12 laying an average of 5-6 a week since! Beautiful white eggs of decent size, should know more as we get into summer. A little skittish, but has survived a coyote attack and 2 hawk attacks (1 cost her a set of tailfeathers and the other dropped her outside of our fence!). Is on the low end of the roost. Very chatty. Smart, comes to door for treats!

I have a Brabanter hen too, and she's exactly as you describe. One of my friendliest hens! Chatty, and comical. She loves attention though, and will fly right up onto my shoulder if I don't pick her up for a nice cuddle. She was a great layer too, but she quit now and she's only three. That's OK, she's a pet now.
I have one hen left after ordering 15 chicks from Ideal. Some were not hardy and the rooster were attack birds. My hen is now two years old. She is now a good producer and very perky.
