They ARE aggressive, especially in breeding season. The chicks need a 24% (or better) Gamebird Starter (GBS) and fresh water available at all times, I also like to put marbles in the waterer to prevent drowning. Also, if you keep them on ground, you will have to deworm them with pumpkins or Wazine 17. Incubation period is 23-24 days. VERY FLIGHTY! They usually lay an egg every other day. Used for meat and hunting. Usually around 12-14 oz. Quiet. They are seasonal layers.
