Hope I do not offend anyone for starting a Wyandotte thread. Been getting a lot of inquiries from people on here about them and I guess if we can have a modern thread and a football thread then a Wyandotte thread ain't too far off subject. IN case you guys don't know , our own Raven was one heck of a Wyandotte breeder along with his son James. Even D.W. told me on the phone he was contemplating getting some so here goes some info and a few photos of mine, Columbians of course. LOL
With their close fitting rosecombs and females with their stiff inverted V tails (what I call a tent tail) and well rounded bodies they are quite beautiful. Unlike other rosecombed breeds they don't have a tubular spike. The comb should have some width in front and tapering to a point in the rear and fitting close to the top of the head and real smooth. When viewed from all angles the outline of the bird should be one of many curves, have well rounded sides and high tucked wings. Here are a few pictures of my dirty lil Wyandottes. Notice the one setting how she can flatten out and cover quite a few Old English eggs.
