The WYANDOTTE chicken is an American breed of chicken developed in the 1870s. It was named for the indigenous Wyandot people of North America. The BLUE LACED RED WYANDOTTE are beautiful chickens that have a blue laced red color pattern which is buff/red in color with a blue that looks just like grey around the edge of every feather. This chicken makes an excellent pet and is a good dual purpose bird. They will on occasion go broody and they make excellent mothers. They work well in confinement or free range and are a great back yard chicken.
The Wyandotte is a fairly large bird, but compact and rounded. The weight range is variable but typically 5½ to 8½ pounds for pullets to cock birds respectively. The breast is deep, full and well rounded. The body of a Wyandotte is described as medium length but very wide, carrying that width across the back and into the tail. It is clean-legged and fairly close-feathered, and has a broad skull with a rose comb. The skin and shanks are yellow, and the ear-lobes, face and wattles are red.

The BLUE CROAD LANGSHAN chickens are also from the Asiatic Class of poultry and are pure breed that originated in China many years ago. They come in Blue, Black, and Splash colors. The hens are excellent sitters as they are large enough to cover a dozen eggs at a time and make wonderfully attentive mothers.

They are strong, intelligent and active birds and chicks mature fast. They are heavy birds so don’t fly much but are able to get over low fences so boundaries need to be secure. They are docile, quiet and tolerant birds which are friendly and easily tamed and so are an excellent choice for families. They are also long-lived birds. Langshans are on The Livestock Conservancy “WATCH” list.
