I love these birds so much
The Wyandotte breed is by far my favorite
I have gl blr and lavender Wyandottes and looking for salmon Wyandottes but I absolutely love these birds
We bought 5 chickens last spring, 1 silverlaced wyandotte, 2 golden sexlinks, and 2 welsummers. 1 gsl died after a couole month for lack of thriving. The other gsl was taken by a raccoon 2 weeks ago. She was our friendliest bird. So we have Peep, our slw and 2 Welsummers (coco and cute chicken) left. Peep loves to jump over our tall fences into the neighbors yards! She was our 2nd most friendliest bird, now our first since Goldie our gsl was killed. Peep follows us around the yard and she doesn't mind being pet. Not overly fond of being held but she tolerates it from me. She doesn't let my kids hold her. She is a good layer, one egg every 1 to 2 days. They are light brown in coloring. I'm very happy we have her. We got 4 new chicks this spring, one of them being a goldenlaced wyandotte. I'm excited to have more of this breed. They are very beautiful birds! Our wyandotte seems to be more people friendly than our welsummers. The cats even get along with the birds
does anybody have fertile eggs of silver and (or) gold wyandottes for sale?
I have a mix of 6 wyandottes silver and buff laced and have won in 3 shows this year. They look great and are easy to handle, the only problem as far as I am concerned is the egg production. They are great breed and I would recommend them to everyone.
I got 3 silver laced in September, and despite being fabulously big and good looking, have not started to lay.... Breeder wasn't quite sure hatch date, so maybe very slow developers or it started getting dark early, which has pushed forward laying till next spring.
Anyway, they are bottom of pecking order (have Rhodie, cream legbar and 2 light sussex) but they have integrated and settled in well. A bit daft. Make sweet low sound, and are delightful to watch.
Like to fly! Even though they are bigger and fatter than the others.
one of my best lookers. I bought her a a single bird to replace a Wyandotte cockerel that I had to find a new home. on reflection I should have bought 2 as on her own she didn't fair too good which made her nervous, a year later and she has settled nicely although at the bottom of the pecking order. I have to look out for her to make sure she gets her fair share of the treats.
I guess her nervous disposition accounts for her poor egg laying production but, I couldn't care less has she is such a nice bird to own, strutting around the garden. She is the sort of bird you just like to look after, like a scared little kid in the playground running from bullys
I have two of these bantams. They are poor layers and are very feisty due to coming from a commercial farm. They are beautiful though which kind of makes up for it. Not for those looking for eggs.
Just bought a trio of silver laced and have been amazed how tame they have become in a very short time .Cockeral is quiet and very docile hens also .So impressed I'm looking to get more
I love this breed! We have one, Her name is Sylvia. She is not to wild and not to tame which is really nice!
Have kept Dottes for over four years. They are an absolute delight to own. Great fun and easy on the allotment.
The only minus as far as I am concerned is that they go broody at the drop of a hat. However this is far outweighed by the pleasure they give in other ways.
