Best Chicken Ever

These chickens are the friendliest birds I have seen, and I have worked with dozens of breeds. They can become so sociable they will sit on your arm or eat out of your hand. They lay consistently for a long time (2-3 years), lay large, brown eggs, and are excellent free rangers. They also taste very good.
They do have a tendency to go broody, and they seem to lose their feathers more than other breeds, both in molt and to aggressive roosters.
