Kabir is great for breeding!
I love this kabir chicken. They proved to be great as they require very little maintenance compared to other chicken breeds. You can just let them roam around during the day and feed them twice and they look happy. As soon as it starts to get dark, they go back to their designated area and take their place. Their eggs are good for eating, too. Their meat is a little bit on the chewy side but not really tough. And they taste pretty good as well..
