They also lay longer for their lifetime than do BRs and occasionally go broody, which most hatchery stock BRs don't normally do. I find the WRs much more hardy as well.

They can often weigh up to a pound or two more than the BRs, as they tend to have more breast and thigh development. Their feed conversion is one of the best I've seen.
