Pros: Super sweet with people, hardy and can take care of herself

Cons: Aggressive with other birds

I received a free Shamo from another BYCer who got her from a neighbor and could not keep her due to her aggressiveness with his egg layers. "Sophie" as she has been named is very good with people, not aggressive at all with anyone in our household. She LOVES to be petted and held and is a daily egglayer for my husband and I. She can take care of herself and have not had to worry about hawks or anything like that because of her size and aggressiveness towards other birds.

 

In fact, that would also be the only downside. Shamos tend to be bird aggressive and will do well with those who are used to keeping game varieties and know you can't just toss everyone in a pen together.

Oh she looks so cool how tall is she?
I need to put up more pix. She is about a foot tall since these stand up more than regular chickens and very heavy and strong.
