Pros: Sweet, beautiful song/voice, docile
Cons: Flighty - especially rooster
I have 5 of these sweet little birds. They are high to medium high on the pecking order and they are coopmates with 5 Buff Orpingtons and 4 Salmon Faverolles who were all purchased at the same time.
I have a rooster who has a large bright red comb and I knew he was a roo when he was about 3 1/2 - 4 weeks old. He will not let me pet him but he does walk fairly close to me. He was noisy at first but he seems to only make noise now when he is calling his girls. I have one that since she was a week old liked to peck at me, not mean, just to say hello - she is named Spike because she had one feather that stuck up on the right side of her comb. I have a smaller one that does get picked on a little bit and seems to be on the lower end of the pecking order - her name is Dot and she hangs out with her sister Dash sometimes and a Salmon Faverolle. Then I have one that I still haven't named yet who is just somewhere in the middle of the pecking order and seems to be docile and quiet.
They do have a beautiful cooing noise they make when they are happy and investigating something but mine will squawk when picked up at first then relax, coo and get petted. With the exception of Dot... She likes to be picked up.
