    I am considering ordering some WFBS and wanted to know if anyone could tell me more about them.
    What is thier temperment like?
    Are the good egg layers?

    Any other info and pics would be great too!

    Thanks
    Jared

    Spanish have been the most companionable chickens I have ever had. They are not winter layers under natural daylength. They do way better with lots of floor space and a piece of grassy ground with some bushes etc.. Moult very late in the season and moult hard. Old birds go into the fall looking like dejected porcupines and can be cause for some concern. They moult very hard but fast and bounce back. They cannot be completely sorted out as fall young stock but males haven't proven hard to house together. Again, they like ROOM.
