Very friendy and talkative birds, we have one who sits in a bucket as you walk around, very funny. Another who likes to lay her eggs in the recycling paper box!
Tolerate being handled if you can catch them and interact with children once caught. Easy to stroke if you have mealworms to hand.
Good layers which vary in numbers, not the most prolific laying machines, but certainly high numbers of good quality eggs consistently.
Highly rated by poultry keepers and great birds to own as are generally quite tough and self sufficient.
Don't wander off far at all but do like to move around so small runs not really suitable.
