    I've gotten it in my head that I need to have some Cubalayas foraging on my 6 acres. I know they lay small eggs, but it doesn't really matter. I like the way they look.

    I've never even seen one of these birds in person. Anyone have experience with the breed?

    They are a beautiful bird but I haven't had any experience with them or know of anyone that has any. Unless I personally had a specific coop for them, I'd be afraid of the roo's long tail feathers getting ruined. Best of luck to you.

    I just 'googled' them ( [​IMG] ) and they look quite interesting! I've never seen or heard of them before, but they seem like they'd be worth looking into. Let us know if/when you get some! [​IMG]
