A friend gave me a dozen golden phoenix eggs that I popped into the bator. They are due to hatch in a couple days. I researched them a bit and see that the breed doesn't lay very many eggs (only a one star on the Henderson's chicken breed chart). I did a search here and didn't see too many references to the breed. It seems to not be too popular. I'm guessing by the length of the tail feathers, this is an ornamental breed suitable for showing, but not much else. I have to decide what to do with these and was wondering if anyone else had some insight on the breed.
