Pros: cold hardy, friendly,
Cons: broody, this is only a con to some people;)
I have both LF and bantam cochins and I love them. Their fluffy feathered feet are adorable. They have done super in the harsh Montana winter and have been good layers even in the winter without added lights. My kids handle them all the time, they are friendly and gregarious. I will continue to have this breed among my stock. They also have done well free ranging.
