Pros: Egg color (yet to start laying for me)

Cons: Flighty and aggresive

She is really aggressive toward my other chickens and really skittish of humans. A very pretty bird, however, all white with a black speck here and there. I'm anxious to see those blue eggs! I'm hoping to keep her but not if she's going to peck my Silkies to death.   UPDATE: My SBEL is definitely a rooster. He is aggressive and flightly as all get out. Crows at all moments of the day. Would I hatch these out again? No. I have Orpington roos more docile.

They typically start laying at the early age of 24 weeks. These hens lay HUGE blue eggs, five to six times per week." Clearly the two chickens pictured below are not white. When I pointed this out to them they seemed to not be able to...
