    In my experience SLW occasionally have attitude problems with the other birds. Australorps and Brahmas are generally easy going birds.

    I have Buff orps, slw, Easter eggers and a few mixed mutts and so far the Buffs seem to have more attitude with the newer EE's than the SLW. The SLW also lay better than the Buff's but that is just my experience in the first few months of them laying.
