For outstanding vigor, size, uniform growth, early maturity, rapid full feathering, heavy egg production and large egg size, these MONEY MAKERS can't be beat. This fine strain produces large brown eggs with extra good shell texture, and has a yellow skinned carcass free from dark pin-feathers.
Sweet personality, large eggsMy New Hampshires all seemed to have a sweet personality even to the point of wanting to interact with me by sitting on my lap or just following me around the yard. They were never snippy or pecking. They laid very well, large brown eggs and some even were double yolked at times. I would always recommend having at least a couple in your flock if you are wanting to have a favorite that will interact with you.
