Acquired: Bred animal myself
Posted Mar 02, 2014
Of all the breeds of chicken that I grew up with these were my favorite. They were stately and large beautiful birds. Not nearly as aggressive as some of the other breeds my grandfather tried out, they were much easier to get along with, especially when it came time to gather eggs. They produced above average sized eggs, in a nice darker brown color. These also provided an abundance of lean meat. Excellent birds for the backyard farmer.
