    Golden comets are know for high egg-production. Golden comets are a modern day egg-laying day strain of chicken. They are a cross between The white leghorn hen a Rhode island red rooster. Like leghorns, golden comets are know to lay at a very early age, some begin as early as 16 weeks! DSC09897 (2).JPG golden_comets3.jpg

    "Golden Comets"
    Pros - Good disposition, even tempered.
    Cons - They don't lay as good as I thought they would. Rooster super aggressive!

    "Good, sort of aggressive."
    Pros - They lay every day, nice to other hens, not usually broody.
    Cons - Very aggressive toward me
    We have been keeping Golden Comets for 3 years - the whole time we have been keeping chickens. They are awesome birds as far as laying and non broodiness goes, but they peck me and are very aggressive toward me often.

    I'm confused. It lists their temperament as docile AND aggressive. Does one apply to hens and one to roosters?

      It means they can be aggressive with other birds but docile with humans.
