    What is their purpose? meat or eggs/both, pets etc.

    Not sure if this is the right spot to put this but it seemed to be the best.

    They're very small and slender, so not a good choice for meat.

    They're infrequent layers of small eggs.

    They're skittish and flighty, so don't make good pets.


    From what I can gather, they're great at taking care of them selves. They're great foragers, small and so don't eat much, are good at evading predators, and the hens go broody and raise their chicks.
