    They are a dual-purpose breed and pretty to look at. Some say they are too flighty.
    Lovely rose combs.
    Redcap hens lay 120-180 eggs per year.
    Compare that to say a Buff Orpington, which lay 175-200 per year on average.
    White Leghorn hens lays 250-300 eggs per year on average.
    The same is said for Australorp hens.

    Good luck with your decision!
