Introduced from England in the late 1800's, they became one of the most popular hens to raise in this country. These are large, stately birds of quiet disposition. Their heavy, full plumage make them excellent winter layers, shelling out brown eggs right through cold weather. They also make excellent setters and mothers. These "Golden Beauties" are very docile with children and can appear very large due to their fluffy feathers.
