. Minimum order is just two!
The Columbian variety is a more uncommon variety of the Wyandotte, and a
wonderful example of American breeding.These birds are beautiful and
Wyandottes are a favorite amongst backyard flock owners for their
dependable egg laying, easy going nature and cold hardiness. The
Columbian markings are striking: they are clean white birds with black
tails and black dotted hackles. The hens look as if they're garbed in a
stole of heraldic ermine, with a black chemise peeking out from beneath
their argent gowns! The Columbian roosters have the same plumage, but
their hackles and capes are composed of glimmering silver, while their
shadowy tails are abundant, spreading ebony, like the plume of a foot
soldier's hat. (We think Columbian Wyandottes should have medieval names
like Giles, Alastair or Cecily.)
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.
What to know about shipping: All 6-week-old chickens are shipped USPS Express Mail. We are unable to ship to Minnesota, Hawaii, and US Territories due to importing regulations in those states. Minimum order is just two.
Please keep your 6-week-olds quarantined from your existing flock for four or more weeks, and take care when introducing them.
