    I've had Black Minorcas in the past and they are excellent layers that typically lay really large, white eggs. As far as temperament goes, they are typically high strung and flighty. Mine cried bloody murder whenever I handled them, and unlike some of our dual purpose breeds, my children were never able to make lap pets out of them (which is why I don't have Black Minorcas any longer).
