Someone died so you wouldn't have to, have you said thank you?

I kept them for about four years before I went to college.  I really liked them.  They were flighty just because they were more actice compared to say a Rock, Wyandotte, Cochins, etc, but I wouldnt ever say they were wild.  Laying ability with these guys varied a lot but it may have just been my line.  I had a hen that I was lucky to get 10 eggs out of a year but she was my best hen.  Some of her daughters would lay just about the same as her but others would lay like crazy.

I didnt like this guy's comb too much but he had other redeeming qualities.

This cock was about 8 years old in this picture.  Back in the day he was a really nice male just had a run in with a predator through the wire and messed his comb and a wattle up pretty bad.
