Pros: Such a gentle personality! If you want a pet get these! Lay (nearly) every day!

Cons: Dont live long. REALLY wish they did

These were our first breed. I got them when I was 12 (now Im 14) and two died from natural causes when they were 1 1/2. I dont get it. they were perfectly healthy then they stopped laying and next thing I knew they were as thin as can be and die. It wasnt worms or anything like that and none of the other hens got it.

 

on the other hand these birds are the friendliest, most people-loving chickens you can get. I never could have wished for a better pet. So Friendly!

It sounds alot like internal laying/egg yolk peritonitis to me. I just lost a girl to that a couple days ago. I've lost chickens on both ends of the age spectrum, but I think the scariest one was with the 1 1/2 yr old BSL. She had yolk fluid in her throat and nose. They pretty much stop doing anything once they have it, so either their blood gets infected, or they starve.
So sorry you lost some of your girls! They sound like they were really sweet :) *hugs*
