I am going to pick up 4 SLW chicks this weekend. I can't wait to get them, as I've been reading and researching so much (with help from all of you!) and am ready to put this knowledge to work. I just have a question about the breed. The answer doesn't matter, as I'm committed to this breed now and found exactly what I had my heart set on. But I'm reading Storey's Guide now and it says that Wyandottes are not a laying breed... maybe only laying every 100-some days per year. Is this really true? To those of you with Wyandottes, what have you noticed with yours? I guess I was under the impression that they would lay almost an egg a day when I decided on this breed. And we LOVE eggs! That's still OK I guess, for a family of 3... I was just hoping to have some to give away so that our neighbors would like them too. Also, what does 'partridge' mean when referring to chickens? Perhaps I'll get to it eventually in my book, but I'm impatient and can't find it online. What about 'game'? Thanks!
