    Just wondering, who all has wyandottes? What colors do you have?
    We have wyandotte bantams in black, white, dun, silver laced, blue laced red and soon buff. I also plan on getting dun laced and dun barred. One of my goals is to get dun and dun laced colors into standard size wyandottes.

    These are my little monsters, Hotwing and Nugget. They are both BLRWs. This was taken a couple weeks ago. They are now outside in a chicken tractor and hating every minute of it!! Spoiled little things...

    I have 2 silver laced pullets, standard size. They're 8 weeks old, so they don't have their adult feathers yet.

    I have two standard silver laced hens that are about nine years old. Their names are Lotty and Dotty. I have twenty blue laced red chicks that should arrive in June. I can't wait. Wyandottes are a great breed. Please post pics of the dun barred and dun laced, they sound beautiful.

    Yep, they still lay alright. Probably 2 or 3 eggs a week, maybe more in spring/summer. They might might be a little younger. I've had them for six years and they were two or three when I got them (previous owner couldn't remember how long she had them). But 8 is still pretty old. The easter egger in the pic (Judy) is old too but still lays very well. I got her as an adult too and have had her for 6 years. I get about 4 eggs a week from her. Many people don't believe me when I say my hens still lay at nine years old. They have lived stress free lives and are fed a good diet. The are never bothered by a rooster and have free access to my large, fenced back yard.

    Picco- do you feed a 'special' diet, or just a good brand feed? Organic? I'd love to know my ladies will still be around here keeping me company well after my kids are off to college. [​IMG]
