Pros: tame, beautiful, surprisingly good layers, tasty meat
Cons: some strains have become small over the years
we got some of these from sandhill preservation and liked them so much that we started breeding them. they were easy to 'breed up' but their were some things they still lacked. so, we looked for breeders who had different strains of cubalaya. we got some brown red hens and a gold duckwing cock from gallorojo. we added some blacks from saladin. in the past we bred for size and type. now we are breeding for size , type, tameness, color, and multiple spurs. if you let them free range they will forage very good. they lay a good amount of medium sized eggs. their meat is very tasty. they are hardy, vigorous, and healthy. they look good in your yard.
