Like all of the Minorcas these have long, strong bodies well set up on firm muscular legs. The large red combs are very typical and in the hens will fall to one side almost covering one eye. The hens lay good sized white eggs and are nonsetters. Plumage is a rich golden buff color and shanks and toes are a pinkish white.

Buff Minorcas - Ratings and Reviews
Interesting....Last year I ordered a variety to get an idea of what I liked best. I ordered one buff minorca because there were no orpington available. We call her Crazy Alice. She is the noisiest bird in a coop of 34 hens and two roosters. She won't let you near her and squawks nearly all day. Fortunately, I don't really mind. I find all chicken noises soothing. although I would not recommend if your neighbors are close by or internet of noise. That said, she lays a huge white egg every day! I gave 5 stars because she keeps my yard interesting.
flighty but beautiful with large white eggs!These are very shy and flighty birds but they are prolific layers! One of our newbies has begun to be broody and is sitting on the eggs that all the other girls seem to lay right under her! We remove the eggs each day and discourage her broodiness but she is relentless! Did not expect a Minorca to go broody; what a surprise that she wants to be a mother!
