Wyandotte Hens and Bantams

I breed and occasionally show Wyandotte chickens as a hobby.  Currently I concentrate on bantams because they are so much easier to keep and still lay really well.   My main interest is in developing mottled, millefleur and spangled Wyandottes.  I also keep partridge, silver pencilled, blue partridge and blue silver pencilled.

Productive hens

Although Wyandottes are fabulously decorative most of the varieties are extremely productive, laying good sized eggs almost all year.  Bantams too lay surprising large eggs and as a bonus bantam eggs have proportionately larger yolks.

Cockerels too

Of course I also have  cockerels both breeding quality and as companions; ex breeding males are usually free to good homes. Wyandotte cockerels are stunningly beautiful. The hens love having a cockerel to look after them. and  and their interaction with the hens really adds to the pleasure of owning poultry.

Nice natured cockerels

Wyandottes naturally have a good temperament and I select for nice cockerels that don’t attack people and are tolerant of other males.  Wyandotte bantam cockerels are a good size to partner bantam or large fowl and make ideal escorts for ex-bats.
