This is a great breed of chicken is you are interested in having your own farm-fresh eggs. I have never had any issues with lack of production from this breed. Additionally, when handled on a regular basis, they can become quite the pet. I had a few hens that followed me around all of the time (in and out of the house), because I handled them from the moment they were hatched! Excellent food production and pet birds.
