    Does anyone raise Pendenescas or even have them? I'd like to find out more about the breed and possibly find some chicks or fertile eggs to hatch. I've been trying to find a beautiful, heat tolerant, smaller, brown egg layer for my climate. They seem like they would fit perfectly into my flock of mostly Mediterranean breeds. I'd like love to find out more about their looks, foraging habits, laying abilities, true size. I can hardly even find many pictures of them.
    So, if you have Pendenescas, please post pictures here and brag about them!

    I had one I got from Meyer hatchery. Nice eggs. They are not as heat tolerate as one might think. I had one die when the temps sky rocketed in our area. They are hoof moms though. Good luck with ur search.
