    Shamo are a really lovely breed. They are very gamey, intelligent, and certainly the broodiest breed I've worked with. My girl Misha would raise five batches of chicks in a year if I let her. They are very large; they are also poor egg layers. They make excellent pets and are very easily tamed.

    Cocks will definitely be more aggressive toward other roosters (you should keep him him separate from any others you own) but they're usually just as friendly towards people as hens.
