    I am interested in adding a nice flock of purebreds to my mixed flock and I have a few breeds I would like to know about. I like fayoumi, buttercups and brabanters but I am not sure. It seems my most favorite breeds are the flighty white earlobed ones. How big a problem is tree roosting with the flighty breeds? I have an american gamefowl hen that wont roost with the others in the coop. I already lost one game hen out of the trees. My others are an orp, a wyadottes, and a rir. If this is a problem I guess I will stick witht the brown egg layers.

    My family had six Fayoumi over the years, and we had to be careful with the gang of four to get them in the pen before sunset, or they would find their own perches. Those ones were wild and were not easily bribed. The first two were relatively tame and we had no problems with them. Calico in particular would come when called although getting her into the pen could be interesting.
