Ok i'd just like to reply from this thread here viewtopic.php?f=10&t=7968924, as i think it will benefit the breed profile much better than a topic that will be lost in a weeks time.

I had a trio of New Hampshires for only about 6 months, an impulse buy, and and impulse sell :roll: . But, they were extremely friendly, the male was about 12 months old and was lovely natured for a male of his size. The females were POL when i sold them, i didn't get any egg! But the were so docile. You could pick them up in the yard no worries, i actually used them to quieten down a pen of feral chooks believe it or not.

Anyone who wants a ISA Brown, buy New Hampshire's instead. :wink:
