    My family is considering this type of hen. I'd like to know more about it but keep finding the same info.

    Are they good tempered?
    Do they get really big?
    Are they prone to any diseases?
    Are they good egg layers?
    Has anyone noticed any problems with them?
    Does anyone know where to get them in Ohio?

    I've tried tractor supply (they didn't have them) and mt healthy farms (they said it was a 6 minimum order). I only one four to start off with. Also any other advice or info would be greatly appriciated.

    Are they good temperment?
    Yes, will follow you around like a dog.

    Do they get very big?
    No

    Diseased?
    I have not had any problems

    Good Layer?
    Yes, I even have two that lay double yokes

    Problems?
    I haven't had any

    I purchased mine through Mt. Healthy last year nice birds.

    I am raising them for sale as pullets if you are interested. They will be laying around August. I live in SE Ohio.

    I was thinking of going through Mt. Healthy. Do any of you have only comets or did you get a variety?
