  3. We have 5 of them. Nice layers of white eggs. Only one problem, one of our hens lays blood spot eggs but we don't know if it is a Black Minorca or a Brown Leghorn. Same chicken becaue the egg is shaped the same way. I just have to figure out which breed lays which shape.

    They escape all the time. So you'll have to keep their wings clipped. Also if you live in a cold climate, they have large comb and waddles. BUT we live in "Little Siberia" and they have been very hardy so far. Our winters get down below -20 F.
