TwoBitts Farm Breeders of Rare and Standard Breed Poultry
Wyandottes


Wyandottes originate from the United States and no one really knows which breeds were used to create the Wyandotte breed. They were first reported in the 1860s with the silver laced variant being the first variety.

They are large chickens with a rounded appearance, broad bodies and are full feathered. The hens have a deep breast and backside which shows that they are good layers. Wyandottes are docile birds with generally good dispositions. The hens lay well, make good mothers and their chicks tend to be strong and are quick growers.

The Wyandotte has yellow legs, a round, short head, rose comb, bright red ear lobes and reddish bay eyes and are a good dual purpose breed. They come in White, Blue, Buff, Red, Black, Barred, Partridge and Silver Pencilled, Silver, Gold, Blue and Buff Laced, and finally Columbian which has similar markings to the Light Sussex. This makes for an attractive barn yard which appeals to  both fanciers and farmers.

We originally started with Blue Laced Red and Gold Laced Varieties. In 2014 we decided to focus primarily on the Gold Laced variety as it is a variety in desperate need of saving. Our 2013 pullet, pictured to the right below, went BV (Best of Variety) at the CVPA show in Newnan, GA. Her mother went RV (Reserve Variety) to her.  Both Captain and Duane were acquired from Duane Urch.

In 2014 we added a trio of Silver Laced to our wyandotte flock. These birds were purchased from Joe Ulrich and Jerry Foley and are all excellent representatives of their varieties.  We also purchased a pair of Golden Laced from Robert Peck of Ontario, Canada.
With these birds we feel we have a great foundation from with which to build upon.
