6-Week-Olds: Columbian Wyandotte
Product Features:Currently not available
Description:Don't have the time, equipment or inclination to care for chicks? Or were you ready for fresh eggs yesterday? This is the tickets! At 6-7 weeks old, these started pullets are ready to go outdoors, with no heat or special care requirements. Another wonderful benefit is that our juveniles are sexed twice, once at hatch and again at 6 weeks, which reduces your chance of ending up with roosters! Our six-week started
pullets are floor-raised and socialized with humans, vaccinated for
Marek's disease, and their beaks are intact--we never trim.
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.
