Acquired: Worked with animal (didn’t own)
Posted Nov 27, 2013
I must confess that these birds are among my favorite chicken breeds. They are very beautiful birds that come in various colors. The Roosters can be multicolored having colors ranging from white, gold, red and black all on the same bird!
They are also aggressive and protective, especially among the mothers raising chicks, even as far as attacking any bird or four legged animal that comes within a 5ft radius of their chicks. They are very strong agile birds, and very curious too.
The hens lay well, about one egg everyday or every other day during the breeding season. I worked with about three roosters and at first they were aggressive towards one another, but finally started to get along. Great chickens to have, and my personal favorite breed of chickens. I would recommend them for anyone- young or old, beginner or pro. They make very good pets and show birds.
