    If you are looking for a great dual purpose bird look no farther. I get almost and egg a day all year. The egg size is just a hair smaller then the huge eggs I get from my production reds, but still a nice XL egg to be proud of. They puck easier than any chicken I've ever plucked and there large size makes it worth doing. The one rooster I kept (10 months old now) is as large as any Cornish cross I have raised. The hens have nice weight too. I have also had great success hatching there eggs. They are not aggressive, very curious, and just a great chicken. My second generation just started laying and I can not say enough about this breed.

    The indroduction to the coop of 15 other chickens went well. All are very strong energetic birds. The only aggression is an eye to eye strutting standoff that is fun to watch. Great feet and legs good weight., I have nothing bad to say about this breed so far, but they are not laying yet.
