Wyandottes come in an amazing array of varieties. They are a great breed for eggs laying relatively big eggs for their size. They have a calm easy temperament so live in coops or restricted range happily They are a great breed of chicken suitable for novice poultry keepers.
My traditional varieties of Wyandotte are the beautiful partridge, blue partridge, their silver counterpart silver pencilled, blue, blue silver pencilled. Also mottled which was recently re-included in the poultry standards of Great Britain, blacks, blues and chocolates plus other attractive combinations of dilutes and mottling.
New, Unusual and Development Varieties
I currently concentrate on developing millefleur, spangled and mottled, mainly in black but also some of the more dilute colours. I have also bred lavenders, mauve, splash and blue this year. As well as some charming pale and almost white birds from a combination of the above dilutes.
Wyandottes in lots of colours
Chickens for sale
Hens and point of lay pullets
I hatch broods fairly well throughout the year so usually have hens and point-of-lay pullets for sale.
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.
