Breed Details:
Some lines of birds are more frequent in being broody. My particular birds have gone broody six times each this year alone. The males are sweet, relaxed and gentle. Green sheen on males and females is desirable with purple sheen considered less desirable than green. Eyes should be dark, bordering on black. Face and wattles should be red with a medium-sized comb. This breed has done will in 100*F temperatures as well as sub-zero temperatures in the winter. Laying in high temperatures should not be expected. Eggs vary from light brown to dark brown and desirable eggs have a "plum" coloration to the brown.
