I'm thinking about adding some Favorolle and Barnevelder hens to my flock next year. I've heard that they are not great layers. Is this true?

I have 4 adult barnevelder hens and a salmon faverolle. None lay consistently. On and off throughout the season. They are all poor layers. My barnevelder go broody occasionally. They are all pretty to look at, but don't expect too many eggs out of them. They will lay best their first year.
