    These are beautiful and sweet natured little birds. They make great mothers and readily raise their own chicks. Wyandottes have a rosecomb and a well rounded body supported on stout legs. The cocks weigh 30 oz and hens weigh 26 oz. I have the very rare crele color as well as barred. There are only crele roosters in my breeding flock with crele hens and barred hens. Fertility has been 95% and better here. I have 4 hens sitting on eggs right now and my incubators are full. This is a special opportunity for someone who appreciates it to have some of these beauties. The partridge color hen shown in the pic below is no longer in this breeding pen.

    Quote:Would you mind sharing the article that you were reading? I would love to see it, haven't been able to find much info on these colors. Thanks!

    And thanks to both of you, I think these birds are beautiful and the pictures do not do them justice.

    I hatched some eggs from these and got a chick that looks just like the gal in the main picture! She is beautiful with a calm, inquisitive nature. If i had some extra money, I would be bidding right now to win more of these! [​IMG]

    Quote:Did you hatch my eggs? These birds have such a friendly nature and they make great mothers. I'm amazed at how calm they are as broody hens. I can pick them up and check the eggs/chicks without getting pecked. They are wonderful birds.
