    "BEST LAYER OF MY 5YRS CHICKEN HUSBANDRY EXPERIENCE"
    Pros - EGG SIZE, QUALITY, FEED CONVERSION RATIO, FRIENDLY, LAYS DAILY, EGG COLOR NICE BROWN
    Cons - NONE
    My Isa Brown is AWESOME! She lays an egg EVERYDAY, and it weighs consistently over 82gms with 91gms being her heaviest. NEVER A DOUBLE YOKER, THOUGH! She's UNBELIEVABLE!! This is her first year laying.
    Just weighed a dozen of her eggs. Totals a whopping 36+ ounces!
    Even the jumbo cartons are hard to shut!

    "Beautiful and Sweet Birds"
    Pros - Friendly, affectionate, great layers
    Cons - Have not found any yet.
    I purchased 4 from Hoover’s Hatchery and they are mostly friendly along with my Golden Comets.

    "WOW!"
    Pros - Super productive, super friendly (too friendly for me) and very alert to predators.
    Cons - Followed me everywhere even out of the yard. Probably not a con to others.
    I actually liked them, they ate about as much as any breed their size. The were very productive, often 100% of birds laying daily, every other day one out of 8 would not lay. Huge eggs, many double yolked even as they got older. They were always on the look out for hawks which are plentiful here. as soon a hawk flew over they would all stop look up then run under the shrubs like synchronized swimmers. Usually have about 5 or 10 fly over per day but my yard has too many obstacles for hawks to mess with. My only problem is that they followed me everywhere and it was annoying because i work in my back yard everyday. Chickens usually somewhat follow me because my job leads to them finding worms and bugs under nursery pots, but these girls followed me when I left the yard and followed me when I was carrying heavy stuff that was dangerous. They did do a great job of weeding my potted trees. Great pets, great production, but I would rather have leghorns who leave me alone after they eat the worms and bugs I turn up for them.
