They are flighty, nervous individuals who startle easily. If one of them becomes separated from the flock they screech and squawk and run about...very funny really. I am sure they are the prototype for the fairytale hen who thought the sky was falling on her. They can fly quite well which means they can jump and flap over a fence. But because they are a little anxious they usually stay very close to Bruce who is a calming influence.
They are good egg layers (3 or 4 eggs a week) and are not inclined to go broody. They are very pretty too. This photo doesn't do them justice. If you want more information click HERE.
