Pros: Great Freerangers, Docile but Gamey enough go after 5ft Sandhill Cranes in the yard
Cons: Not great Flyers due to thier weight.
As of right now my DCs are only 14 weeks old but the cocks are already close to 5lbs. They seem to be as smart as my OEGs although a little more docile. I ordered a batch of around 30 from McMurry and have been very pleased with how they are turning out. The thing that surprised me the most is how gorgeous they are. In photos they look pretty dull but they are truely beautiful birds. Especially the cockerels. They have this brilliant blue/purple/green iridescence to their feathers. I plan on keeping a rooster and 3-5 hens for breeding next spring. I'll be updating this review as the birds continue to grow with the rest of my flock.
