Pros: Big eggs, pretty and consistent layers
Cons: Problems with feather picking and cannaballism despite my efforts
I started with 8 chicks from TSC . 1 died of overeating. 4 from a coyote raid. 2 from prolapse and hence cannaballism. So now I have only one. That said, they do lay consistently and large eggs. I have been dissapointed though about the feather picking on the other birds since I provide them ample food, forage, nesting boxes etc. I have to islolate them to prevent that. Overall I would say that they are good birds, but one must be especcially protective with them and notice feather picking and cannaballism before it becomes a REAL problem. As of now I purchased 10 more Red sex link chicks. Hoping for the best!
