This was my least favorite chicken to deal with.
They grew too fast for their feathers - and had problems with their feet. They were downright ugly. I don't know about egg quantity, etc, because we didn't keep them beyond butchering age.

They did make nice carcasses, but for all the fuss and bother, it would have been nicer to go for a more all-around breed - or at least not a hybrid bred for nothing other than meat.
