Wyandottes are beautiful and productive birds for the home flock. They are a favorite amongst backyard flock owners for their dependable egg
laying, easy going nature and cold hardiness. Each feather is golden
edged in beetle black. The hens look
as if they're starlets dressed in sequined gowns, ready for the red
carpet and paparrazzi! The roosters
have the same laced feathers, but their hackles and capes are composed
of glimmering gold, almost reminiscent of a Spanish bullfighter: they
have the same proud stance, too.
Wyandottes have a
heavy body and small rose comb which makes this breed perfect for cold
climates because they are not prone to frostbite. The hens are hardy,
energetic and faithful layers.
