Oh no, I'm falling in love. My Cubalaya hens are the sweetest little things! I happily acquired 2 roosters and 3 hens from a friend. I unfortunately lost one hen shortly after (I have no idea what happened to her---she just disappeared) but everybody mingles with my mixed group really well. In fact, the roosters are strutting their stuff all over the chicken yard if ya know what I mean They were probably 6 months old when I got them. They had not been handled or particularly acclimated to humans. When they joined the flock, I figured they would just be skittish members underfoot. Instead, the hens have been verbal, curious and friendly. While I'm out cleaning or tending, they are my inquisitive company. The roosters however, are all rooster---I keep my eye on them. Today I found my first Cubalaya egg. My plan is to isolate the two hens with a rooster in the spring. Keep your fingers crossed. I've never bred chickens before, but I sure would like more of these delightful little birds. Anyone else have any experiences or insight with this breed?
