    Aseels, in my opinion, are great.

    Despite what people think, if you get them before they are fully mature they will mix in with your flock really well.

    Mine are undecided on who they like more. They share nights with the OEG roosters and the Silkies.

    I find Aseels to be real docile with humans and not flighty. They are fast little buggers, but real easy to tame. I'd say, similar to Silkies, when it comes to difficulty of taming (not very).

    They, unfortunately, don't lay much, and it is very seasonal. They are also very expensive. At $200 a bird (for this quality), I really did get a bargain (mate's rates).

    It might be cheaper in USA. I had to pay $190 for freight. I heard that in the USA people actually drive to different States sometimes, so freighting might not be an issue for you.
