Thank you, Mrs. FP! hugs  I've been in love with this breed ever since I first got mine as young chicks.  I bought them from a breeder, and I just can't rave enough about them.  They're very inquisitive birds...not super friendly as in wanting to be touched and held, but not flighty and spastic either.  They like to keep their distance and observe.  I quite often describe them as mystical and mysterious.  My flock is only 7 months old and 1 of the pullets just started laying last week.  She lays every other day.  As far as broody...I have no idea yet.

My pullet just started laying, and her eggs are a medium brown color.
