    Red-Breasted Rosecombs can be very flighty, but they'll grow on you! They will perch just about anywhere and eat treats from your hand! These are for advance chicken keepers I think because they can be so flighty and kind of mean at first! The roosters strut around nice and tall and watch their hens peck the yummy tid-bit they found for them like a heroic king. I think these birds would be great for showing!

    "Pretty and Flighty..."
    Pros - Gorgeous
    Cons - Flighty; Jumpy
    I have six of these birds; they are GORGEOUS! They are the cutest little things ever! The little roosters strut around as if they own the world! I get 2 eggs a day from 5 hens. They are scared of everyone but the pros out-weigh the cons. I definitely recommend these chickens!

    Cool! I've got the Black variety of this breed, and I can't wait to see how they turn out!

    How broody would you say these birds are? We had one when I was young and she was our only hen that ever sat. I just thought about getting a pair. :)
