I purchased a flock of these birds because I read in Mother Nature Network, http://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/animals/photos/a-chicken-breed-to-fit-your-need/best-tasting-birds , that they were one of the best tasting chickens. They are Black Chickens with white ear-muffs and an arrow-like comb. They are feisty, flighty, but will always go back to their coop at night. I keep them away from other breeds of chickens because they like to peck at their feet-i guess it's because they taste real good. I've had them since day were a day old chicks, so I guess they are somewhat comfortable with me. They laid their first egg on the 23rd week. It was small and white. So I am guessing, they take about 6 months to lay.
This fabulous breed are a worthy edition to any collection. Our three La Fleche are now 24 weeks old and are looking wonderful, they are a truly striking breed. The cockerel is friendly and is starting to develop his striking features such as the wonderful v-shape horns and the large wattles and ear lobes. We are very excited about the future of this great breed and we look forward to breeding some next year.

We think this is a fabulous breed that deserves to be more popular and is a striking addition to any collection. This breed is considered by some to be nervous, flighty and challenging to keep however we have found with careful, frequent handling from an early age they can become fairly tame and will quickly get to know you. We take care to make sure we give all the birds we keep the same level of attention and care.
