Pros: easy to care for, roos are protective, docile, consistent layers year around
Cons: hard to find good stock
I've had Black Javas for 4 years and they have been a great project for the whole family. They are ok egg layers, but not great for meat (about 3.5 lb at 20 weeks) but that is just fine with me. with careful breading I am finally getting good results SOP with very few Pinched tails this year.
