    Are you in the United States or England. That will help us.

    You have many color varieties not available in the states. Pyles, mille fleur, blue partridge (!) and chocolates to name a few. We only see pictures of these on the web or in magazines. Also, American wyandottes more resemble the shape of the German variety. British wyandottes are much rangier looking with smaller combs... Maybe you should start a British wyandotte thread!
