    Wow, very nice girls. Where did you get them if you don't mind me asking? Blues are a very uncommon color in Wyandottes.

    Hatcheries are starting to get their hands on them, they aren't so uncommon anymore. They will never make it as a showable, recognized variety due to the dark legs, though.

    Yep, lovely Blue Wyandotte! They're getting more common these days, hatcheries sell em for a few extra dollars each. I got a little one of my own.
