My neighbor kept these for me while they were baby chicks, but gave them to me once they were somewhat mature. They are fairly slow at laying eggs, maybe 4 eggs per week (5 on a good week). However, the eggs were large, so we did not need that many. While owning these chickens, we did not need to buy any eggs for years, as we used them for a family of 6. Beautiful chickens, also very friendly near the kids. I think the meat was also pretty good too, because my dog ended up bringing one of them to the front door :/ (Note: keep away from dogs)
