These birds have been a pleasure to raise. Rosecombs take a considerable amount of time to mature and feather out but the reward is well worth the wait for a gorgeous bird. The hens make excellent broodies and the roosters are gentle fathers. The breed tends to be more flighty than my docile cochins but they are in no way mean or aggressive as they are sometimes thought to be. Rosecombs are great foragers and will feed themselves very well when left to free range. They are also good flyers and love to perch up high and belt out a crow to show everyone what powerful little birds they are. These tiny bantams are packed full of personality. They talk to eachother constantly and the rosecomb rooster is always the first to spot a would be predator and let out his warning call. Everyone who stops by my home is impressed with this breed. The rosecomb is a true show stopper.
