With their huge, bouffant crest of feathers these birds have a comical appearance. They are quiet and friendly and make great pets. Care must be taken to ensure that these birds can locate their food and water as their vision is limited due to the size of the crest. Should you think that the vision is problematic, the crest can be carefully trimmed. Egg laying is varied in this breed but they can lay up to 180 small white eggs per year.
