Cons: they don't like being confined
I was given 5 chicks and ended up with 3 roos and possibly 2 hens. I didn't spend a lot of time with the chicks, yet they are friendly and allow petting (when contained). I don't think they're flighty as much as they are very much jungle fowl. They like to roam and hunt for food, yet still come running when they know I have treats. I've really enjoyed having them. Once I narrow down the roo I want to keep I will be re homing the others. I hope to raise a small flock. They are territorial and make sure that the other chickens stay in their own fenced yards, though they have yet to hurt any of the other birds.
The feathers are very colorful in the sunlight, despite being black. beautiful birds.
The only thing I don't care for about the birds is that they won't stay in their yard and they dig up my flower beds. If you wish to keep them contained, you must have a covered run and give them plenty of room.
