    I'm thinking about including Yokohamas and Russian Orlafs in my order tomorrow, because I think they are very pretty and I've never heard of them before. Does anyone on here know anything about them or has ever raised them? I breed chickens, and don't really care if they are great layers, just if they are docile and good for breeding. And are Yokohamas and Russian Orlafs rare?

    Russian Orloffs are one of my favorites. Very easy to tame, inquisitive, ok layers,slow to POL, raised some beautiful and better laying EEs out of them. Mine are hatchery birds with good spangling,body shape and beards.
