males hardly ever scrap
males really friendly after 6 months old
Dont need big runs

loads of diffrent colours
got character
children friendly
really popular
great for first time chicken owners
suit cold winters and warm summers
can be easy sexing while they are fully feathered because most of the time males have larger combs

Negatives:
when younger than 6 months old males can be a bit bossy to humans
lay small eggs
in wet weather might need to wash there feathers on feet

when young got to watch out for rondents and squirrels
