Breed Details:
True Holland stock is a sight to behold and varies greatly from the hatchery crosses. They are friendly and easy to tame, perfect for children to show and raise to be pets. As with any breed, there are cases of aggressiveness in the roosters. Hens lay well and have a tendency to brood. They are good mothers. They can be flighty birds if not handled much. They lay not so much a white egg, but more of a light cream colored or off-white egg.
