    We see quite a few now days and they are fair game in both spring and fall here in kansas.From what I have read they seem to think they don't usually produce

    Bearded hens lay eggs just like any other hens from what I hear.

    Yep :cheers:

    We see more of them now than we used to although we've always had a few hairy ladies running around

    We usually see them at the farm. I have read that they produce like any hen. A beard is just a type of feather really.

    What I have read but never seen is a hen having spur or spurs.

    Have seen 2 hens both had beards and both had small spurs smaller than a jake would have.

    That makes it easier to pull the trigger on them in the fall! :wave:
