Pros: Layers! Wow!
Great birds if you want lots of big eggs. They were friendly, almost to friendly. They tried to come inside with us and we even found them trapped in the garage a few times.
When I collected eggs to hatch in the spring, over 50% of all hatched eggs came from these birds. That was not what we were looking for and I only had one coop, so we sold them to make more room for better breeders (but not better layers)
