Great egg machines. BUT KILLERS of any chicks or other hens in the same general area or visible area. I got these a year ago and everything was great until about a month ago. They have actually jumped/flown over a 4 foot tall plus fence where I have my 8 weeks old chicks. I finally caught them and have raised the fence but NOT until they killed 50 plus chicks. And NOW that they can no longer get to the chicks they have started on my older hens. Light Brahma's , other cinnamon queens, and Austrolorps.
NEVER AGAIN you loose way more in dead chickens then you gain in egg production
