Columbian Wyandotte Chickens were first introduced at the Columbian Exposition (better known as the World's Fair held in Chicago) in 1893, hence the name they now hold. These birds are truly in a class of their own with the Columbian pattern on their necks and tail feathers that contrast with their white bodies. Definitely a must for your flock!
Columbian Wyandotte Chickens are a docile breed that may occasionally go broody. They have clean legs and a rose comb. Wyandotte hens lay upwards of 4-6 brown eggs per week. Wyandottes are also considered a sustainable heritage dual-purpose breed, so they are a great choice for your homestead.
