These birds are an excellent dual purpose breed, they are also Auto Sexing (like the Legbar) and?grow quickly. This makes them an ideal breed for schools or someone who wants to hatch a couple at home.?They?lay around 190 to 230 speckled brown, good sized eggs a year.
They’re very docile and are easy to tame, they’re a good breed for children. We have found them a pleasure to breed, rear and work around.
They don’t tend to scratch up the grass as much as other clean legged birds.
They are very hardy and cope well in confinement but are happier in a large run.
