These chickens are not suitable for backyard birds. They are very aggressive and hard to raise without keeping the roosters always separated. Ours had a tendency to fight until one bird or the other died, unless something or someone intervened. That being said, they are gorgeous chickens, just don't expect them to be friendly.
