    I think this is a WTB also, but it has the “throwback” single comb. From what I’ve read the breed was developed using Ameraucana x Leghorn crosses.

    I can't wait to get mine in a couple weeks. I like the no beard no muff look they have.

    Just received a Whiting True Blue, 4weeks old. She's a lot younger than the one in your picture. I knew they flew better than other chickens but she is flying already. We discovered this by accident when someone left the top of the cage open and found her up high. We put her on the floor. She flew up to the back of the couch and then across the room to a chair. Anyone out there free range them and is it a problem?

    All four of my WTBs love to roost in the highest possible spot. I often see them eyeing the rafters in the coop as if they’re trying to figure out how to make that work. I also have to be mindful of where I place my lawn chair because Gladys has figured out that she can use it to roost in the pear tree. Mine are penned, so not really sure about free range habits. Would love to see pictures of your girls.

    She's the gray one on the left, about 6 weeks old now I assume. The one on the right is a Welsummer. I would have ordered more but we can only have 6 chickens in my town.
