    Tell me everything I need to know about this breed. I'm hatching eggs and I know very little about them except they look cool! Thanks!

    They're extremely friendly little birds. They're like Chihuahuas; big bird personality in a little bird body! They lay very tiny eggs, a decent amount but only during the warmer months of the year. There are three kinds; traditional, American, and Malaysian. Malaysian are very rare and the most extreme type. Traditional are the most common and are bred only for type and personality, so they can be any color. American are always a specific variety (White, Wheaten, etc.) and are bred to the APA/ABA Standard of Perfection. They don't do as well in very cold climates as other chickens, just because they are so small they can't generate a lot of body heat. They can fly pretty well but they don't do it very often. They eat only a very tiny amount of feed.
