    They are very observant to say the least. My breeders were super nosey...lol They can be a little flighty too, but not anywhere as bad as the leghorns. My girls always layed really well too. Through the summer and everything. I think they slacked of in the winter but I can't remember. I loved them. Very pretty. Now that I think about it, I think they were the only breed I had that layed a true white egg... [​IMG]

    Does anybody have Buttercup Breeders? My fiance loves our Buttercup, and I am thinking of getting a couple more for her.
