The Pita Pinta are lovely birds in every way. They are medium sized large fowl that are very friendly, non-combative, great egg layers, and good for meat even though they aren't that big. We process the extra cockerels at 18-22 weeks and they average 3-3.5 lb processed. This is my 3rd year breeding them and I have nothing negative to say about them. I have been selling my breeding cull POL pullets and another good thing that I've learned about this breed is that they are very adaptable. The girls that I have sold have fit right in with existing flocks and started laying eggs within days of going to their new homes. I keep the pullets here in town with me until I rehome them or they are ready to go into breeding pens at the farm. I usually have multiple ages of birds free ranging my 1/3 acre backyard. The Pita Pinta have never shown any aggression or picked on any of the smaller birds. If I had to go down to only 1 breed, Pita Pinta would be that breed.
I also love my Langshan. I love them for their looks and for their size. They don't lay quite as many eggs as the Pita Pinta but they are good for meat, too. They are a slower to mature breed and are not as friendly as the Pita Pinta. I think that if I had fewer birds and was able to give more individual attention to the Langshan, they would be friendlier. I have had a few black pullets/hens who are very aggressive when broody. I have one that I call Striker because she nails me every time I check underneath her. I have never been nervous or had to watch my back around the boys. I can sit in the field or pen with 8 to 10 of them around me without any worries. My blue rooster Nantong is gorgeous and hasn't shown any aggression towards me even when I'm dealing with his girls.
