    Is anyone out there familiar with this breed? Do they lay well? How aggressive are the males, and do they free range well?

    Thanks!

    Quote:Pullets and hens lay about 5 eggs per week in the spring and fall, without supplementing light or heat. This number drops after their second year.

    Quote:As aggressive as any other breeds males can be. Give them lots of room and plenty of hens, you should have very little problems. If you are keeping them cooped, do not keep more than one male.

    Quote:Yes, they thrive while free ranging.
