Pros: Very fun to watch, sweet personalities, IMO very pretty bird.
Cons: Hard to get up to SOP (what bird isn't?) Really needs more dedicated breeders.
My boy is super sweet and huggable, my girl is a bit afraid of me, but if I pick her up when she isn't expecting it, she calms down nicely and lets me pet her. She is not up to the standard in size, and is smaller than my leghorns. However, she seems to be going through a growing spurt at 19 weeks. These older breeds may continue to grow for quite a while. I was told 6 months, then they start filling out more. We shall see after they're a year old how large they get. I'm getting more eggs in the spring because I really love these birds and hope they'll lay well enough (at least 3 eggs a week) Then I'll be happy.
