Very friendly. They are normally the first ones to meet me at the gate and most will even let me pet them. Please understand that all my chicks are raised by a broody hen so they don't get the same interaction that chicks raised in a brooder in the house would but these birds are still very friendly.
The roosters are very aware and vigilant. I have never had a rooster attack me even when I mess with their hens. The roosters normally weigh in over 8 pounds and the hens are around 6 pounds. They have been listed on the Slow Food Ark of Taste for their wonderful flavored meat.
The hens lay big brown eggs normally weighing between 60 - 65 grams and on average lay 220 eggs a year
They are Cold and Heat Hardy
