    I've been reading about the breed but wanted personal experiences with them - I've got an opportunity to buy some American Bresse (white variation) hatching eggs from someone local.

    Thanks for any input!

    I heard a lot of good thing about this breed as dual purpose breed. Unfortunately, they are still expensive and not many available around me. I did purchase a White Bresse x Cream Legar rooster. Will hatch some cross chicks in the next few months. I found the rooster little flighty. If the price right where you are, go for it.
