Cinnamon Queens despite the cool name aren't very popular or quality material. They are the average Joe chicken. Their appearance is cute but not unique as many other red chickens look similar. They are not officially accepted by the APA (american poultry association) and only have one color. Their eggs are an average size and I've never had an egg with a double yolk. The chickens while they can be held can be slightly hard to catch and only tolerate it for a couple minutes before trying to break free. They are healthy birds that are dual purpose and are easily caught by predators because they have some extra meat weight. They'll lay 2-4 medium brown eggs per week and are best in close to room temperature weather. A great quality about them is they tend to make fabulous mothers that will protect their chicks. If you're looking for an average dual purpose chicken that will lay some eggs, make a great mother, and can be a table bird you've found the bird for you!
