Behavior and character
The Gâtinaise is one of the most affectionate hens. She tends to behave like a pet. This casserole has no apprehension vis-à-vis the man so that even the little ones can spend beautiful moments in his company without fear. She can also cohabit with other hens of different breeds and other barnyard animals.

Gâtinais hens are good at laying white eggs weighing 60 g or more. They produce a respectable number (170 eggs per year on average), even during part of the winter. The Gâtinaise is a prominent incubator, so be sure to collect the eggs regularly, especially if you also have a rooster.
