look no further.
the lightest weight layer 3.5# hen 5# boys - remarkable feed conversion.
can forage for their food 3 seasons.
vigorously cold hardy for their size.
lay and lay and lay = they outlay most peoples mixed flocks.
large size white/cream.
good lay longevity in terms of years of lay.
WINTER layers - outlay all but possibly sex-links but with better lay longevity
WITHOUT light or heat added.
reportedly lay through their molt
not broody at all
remarkably - sexable at birth
they have a bizarre immunity to inbreeding problems.
they are good FLIERS and good SURVIVORS of predation
but NOT skittish/panicked like hamburgs and some leghorns
they are derived from an ancient 'landrace' but do not act feral.
the slightest drawback = single comb frostbite if your not experienced with that.
