Pros: Energetic, good at avoiding predators.
Cons: A bit flightly, I guess?
Only had my point-of-lay White Star for a couple of months, but she's fast become a favourite!
Bags of personality. She's had her wings clipped but she still manages to get up on things my other hens have no hope of reaching. As soon as something unfamiliar enters the garden (like our neighbour's husky!) she's on top of the coop in seconds (while the other girls are still flapping about and bumping into each other at ground level!) I should point out that the dog is always on his lead and is terrified of the chickens, anyway!
She was very flightly when I first introduced her. It took perhaps a month for her to find her place in the flock and identify with humans enough to run over as soon as I'm out into the garden.
