    "So Friendly"
    Pros - Friendly, Gentle, Very tame, Good Layers
    Cons - None!
    New to the chicken business. Got a couple of Lohman Browns! They are so gentle and very tame, they tolerate children picking them up. They lay beautiful brown eggs everyday! I couldn't ask for better chickens.[​IMG]

    "Friendly, tame, funny and gentle chickens"
    Pros - Easy to tame, friendly and a whole lot more!
    Cons - NONE
    I'm a beginner to all of this chicken stuff and the first ever chicken I got was a Silkie X Campine cockerel, he was VERY untame! But then my aunt got me these two chickens and they completely changed that cockerel. They made him friendly and tame. The two Lohmans follow me around and even copy what I do. They are brilliant egg layers throughout the whole year. They haven't been through a moult for a whole year. I've just bought some Silkie Frizzles, lets see what the Lohmans do!

    I would definitely recommend these chickens to anyone!

    "A delightful redhead"
    Very placid and tolerates being picked up by kids multiple times a day. We call them an Isa Brown breed here in Australia.

  2. New Chick Love
    I have four Lohmann Browns (my first chickens) and they have the sweetest disposition. They are very friendly to humans and each other. They have just started laying, and I'm getting four eggs a day, even though its winter. Very cold hardy birds which is great for my climate. I'll have to see about egg eating but so far no problems at all. I don't care about showing either, and I think they make a fine flock!

    had 4 Lohmann Browns as my first chickens, we have come through our first year together and its a pure love story, they are intelligent, friendly and eager for human attention. i have got 4 eggs a day most days, never had less than 3 eggs a day. they have just gone through their first moult without any problems. i didnt want them for showing so not being pure bred doesnt matter to me.
