Pros: Early layers of very large eggs
Cons: skittish, flighty
We've had several and their chicks (hatched by other hens). It's a mixed bag with personalities. I've had 2 that were friendly, that is, as long as you didn't try to pick them up. I found that once I had them, they settled down and seemed to enjoy being made over. They were also very cheeky, coming to the back door for food if they thought they didn't get their share! I have also had some, mostly roos, that were so flighty and skittish they ended up in the stew pot. I have two young ones that are skitty if you try to hold them, but they like being around me. They lay well, and, hopefully, will settle down a bit when they get a little older. They also are VERY NOISY , they "talk" all the time.
All in all, a good breed for eggs, but not pets.
