    Hi, We bought a bunch of these chicks from Tractor Supply. They are very smart, curious, and growing up fast. At 3 weeks, have lots of feathers and are trying to fly. Not interested in a lot of supplemental heat, wanting to forage for things.
    As adults, these chickens are supposed to be medium sized, with blue/green iridescent colors over red and black feathers. Hens lay 200-250 medium / large brown eggs annually, and roosters reach 4-4.5 pounds by about 12 weeks old. The breed is supposed to be a hardy one. We shall see! [​IMG]
