A side from it well-known meat, it is a good layer of large to extra-large cream colored eggs with non-broody hens. They are exceptionally gentle and a favorite on our farm.

I have found that some hens like to brood, it doesn’t seem to be a standard. Icelandic chickens offer variety with a colorful, unique flock. They can differ in disposition from flighty to sweet. You can keep multiple cocks in the same flock if they grow up together.
The Malines is a massive bird, among the heaviest of all chicken breeds. The Malines is reared mainly for its meat, which is fine, pale, and close-textured. Hens lay about 140–160 tinted eggs per year, with a weight of about 65 g (extra large!). They are good mothers and excellent sitters. This is one of my favorite breeds we raise as they are very gentle and loving.
