    maybe you need to put this in 'breeds in general'

    actually if you do 'search', esp. in the Breeds in General section of the forum, you will find there have been several threads on exactly that subject in recent weeks. They're helpful, go read 'em!

    Mine lay well in the spring and summer. They are a little flighty but not too bad. The chicks are beautiful.
    I I like mine for their color but they aren't the best layers I have ever had.

    I have a little campine hen, she's a little flighty, but not NEAR as bad as some other small breeds I own. She lays and egg for me every 3 days or so, not bad....:) Mine also only lays in spring and summer. But what are ornamental breeds for anyway? If you want eggs you get layers, not campines. :)
