    One of our members does have them and she likes them immensely. Maybe she'll see your post and chime in.

    thanks! I hope someone does see the post!

    In tribute to my grandparents who are both gone, yes I am a stubborn Norwegian! [​IMG]

    I have a chance to get some 3 month old pullets, the guy said they are good egg layers of large white eggs. I was just hoping they were a "docile" bird.

    anyone?

    Check out Ideal Poultry website.
    I think they carry that breed but it is available during certain months

    ---EDITED: Oops, scratch this! I was confusing these with the icelandic "Viking" chickens!!! Sorry!!-----
    I looked into these birds. They are beautiful, but they are a lot more "wild" than most of the backyard chickens you normally see. They really need to be able to free range, it seems. We decided they would definitely not be happy in our small suburban coop. I never saw then referred to as "docile"! Very cool birds though...
