    These are great birds for newbies to chickens. The hens will sit and hatch eggs if you want to keep away from the hassel of incubators. Hens are wonderful moms. The birds have a calm nature. Too heavy to fly, fences don't have to be very high. Make sure to keep fencing high enoughto keepbig preditors out and neeting overhead to keep flying preditors out. These have beautiful soft feathers. If given enough room you can house more than one Rooster with enough hens. Cockerels make very good fryers.
