    Could not stop myself [​IMG] and added these to the brooder today. I liked the facts regarding the two breeds:

    Partridge Chantecler - Bears cold weather, good winter layer and nice lacing on the feathers

    Egyptian Fayoumi - Good free rangers, foragers, disease resistant.

    Anyone have these breeds in their flocks?

    We have a small flock of Eygptian Fayoumis that run with our goats. Great layers, foragers, and even had one go broody and hatch her own clutch last year. Beautiful birds.

    Congrats on your addition.
