    I live in Central Florida and am not familiar with Wyandotes. They look HEAVY and am not sure if they would surivive our heat/ humidity. Anyone in Florida have these?
    TIA

    We have GLW's and BLRW's and a freind of ours has GLW's, SLW's and BLRW's and we don't seem to have problems with them. We are in Ocala. I think as long as they have lots of shade and plenty of water for the heat of the day they should be fine.

    I'm in North Fl, have SLW & BLRW. They have no more problems than any of my other breeds here.

    Thank you so much for your replies [​IMG]! I see that they are cold tolerant- so I wasn't sure that meant that they are NOT HEAT tolerant [​IMG]. They look so big and bulky (if you will) in pictures- pretty! Are yours good egg layers and have gentle disposition?
