My BB d'Anvers rooster has a disagreeable temperament, nearly impossible to handle, distrustful, aggressive with all other roosters, nearly impossible to catch. Though he is often handled he never get's used to it and fights like crazy to get loose. By far the most flighty bird I have ever owned.

Good forager and extremely beautiful feather arrangement and appearance.

Not a good breed for eggs or meat, strictly ornamental in my experience.

Really good cold tolerance and average heat tolerance.
