We have several in our flock currently and they are generally good foragers and low maintenance. Ours love running around the field and I have no problems collecting eggs from them. Their not typically broody though mine can be feisty at certain times of the year. This breed is also a good laying breed, giving good quality large eggs. They also make a nice meat bird to butcher at anytime. This breed is also gorgeous and intelligent, so they can make good pets for children.
