an "old fashioned red wyandotte"?
is it possible that this is just a blrw? Anyone know? Now I'm curious and it will eat at me for the next 2 or 3 weeks .
not me but i dont know a whole lot about wyandottes
My guess would be that it has to do with body type, ect. Like maybe it's type is closer to the way there were historically. Not sure though.
I came across an entry on Wikipedia that lists a red Wyandotte but unfortunately not a picture:
And this listing http://www.chickenkeepers.co.uk/chicken-keeping.asp?sc=Wyandotte says that a Red Wyandotte is a "tawny chocolate brown."
When I was a member of the wyandotte breeders club there were a couple breeders with red wyandotte bantams. I have never heard of them being 'old fashioned', could you be thinking of rose combed rhode island reds?
I don't have a clue what they are . I spoke to a guy who said he was getting some "old fashioned red wyandottes" in a few weeks. Of course, I'll be calling back to see if he has them and I'll be driving the hour drive anyway so I just might stop by and see them . I was just wondering if they were legit since I've never heard of them or seen them and, I wanted to see a pic of some. He said he was getting RIR, doms, and ofrw.
