    "Somewhat accurate"
    Pros - Accurate description
    Cons - Temperament and Broodiness not accurate from my experience
    I have CA Poulet Bleu. Yes they are very good layers. My roosters are all very gentle, as are the hens. They are good foragers. I have some very persistent broody hens. I have not let them hatch chicks so I can't comment on their mothering abilities but I suspect they will be good moms as they are very protective of their eggs

    There is a person that have these breed and GreenFire Breese. He refer this breed over Bresse because it larger and heavier. According to him, the taste is about the same. I want to try some, but he about 2.5 hrs drive from me.
