    Anybody had these? How well do they lay 1-10?

    I have quite a few. I also have Blue Wheaten and Wheaten Marans as well. . . They lay very well, and are usually the majority of my winter egg layers. I'd give them a 9, considering their production will last longer than your average hatchery production layer.

    I have 8 bcm chickens, two roos and 6 hens and they are the best chickens I could ask for! Except for a naughty teenager that thinks he is king [​IMG] I had to wait a godd long time waiting on these girls to lay and it was well worth the wait. My eggs are not as dark as I was hoping for but I have gotten some that are absolutely gorgeous!!!! [​IMG] I am going to hatch these guys out to butcher them, because the roos get huge! Yummy soup [​IMG] Good luck with yours and there are so many people on here that can help you out if you have any questions on anything. I love the forum![​IMG]
