    Too many pages to read all of this, but how do you pronounce wyandotte? Is it wyandot or wyandoat?

    Quote:Looks like the first one could be. Can't see the combs real well, but if they are rose combs, the chance is pretty good they are wyandottes [​IMG]

    I am hoping so. The more I look Wyandotte's a beautiful breed!!!

    Well hmmm your probably correct! Could be the differance between east and west. I've learned teaching home school to my kids that people in the south talk so much different then people in the west! Try teaching a phonics book that was written in the south when you live in the west! Its crazy how much different it is!

    That's the pronounciation I've always heard breeders using, and the one I use.

    This is the way I say it, but I was told by some wyandotte owners that it was why ahn doat. Phonetically, I think it should be why ahn dot...just my $0.02.

    Quote:Yes, they are both BLRWs. Hatchery or breeder, they can vary a lot in color. My guess is two splash roosters. [​IMG]
