Thank you all. She sure has a sweet disposition already. Very calm. Will have to come on and watch for other photos and info. And, post some of her as she grows. New breed for me..I've read up on a lot of the posts here. Learned a lot. Was interested in the egg laying. Sounds like they are a pretty good sized bird. Looking forward to the big eggs that I am reading about on here too.
Also, good to read that they are good winter birds..we get some hard winters here.
Just an FYI that my two Bielefelder hens started laying much later than the other hens. I got them at the same time, and the same age in June 2015. Most of the flock was laying by October. One of the Bieles started laying in December and the other took her sweet time and didn't start until the end of January!
I think it might have something to do with size of the bird, but I'm not sure. Their eggs are much larger, and they really are sweet. Now I feel like I'm playing favorites! All my girls are sweet!
