    So tempted by Featherhill Farms white wyandottes,... after seeing his wyandottes winning at the shows,.. seeing how big and nice they are..

    But, I will resist. I've got enough breeds. If you want day old chicks but want birds with show potential and true to type then try Mr. Albritton at Featherhills Farm/hatchery. He's in WA and super nice.,
