This chicken is a pleasant bird to own. I had 3 of them and only once, for a very short time, was one of them broody. They are very independent and will disappear into the bushes and always find their own food. It also means that they are stimulated and are active and don't stay in one area. They can be a bit shy and so it can be hard to get close to them as other chickens can be a bit more tolerant than them. Their colouration is a smoky blue which is rather beautiful. Their eggs are a large and they lay well. This probably a good chicken to own after you have got to terms with how to successfully look after chickens.
