Black Wyandotte:

The Blue variation deals with the Andalusian blue gene which gives blue, black and splash offspring. (Splash is not a recognised color but can be used for breeding.) The base blue of the bird should be dark and rich with a darker blue around each feather, giving the illusion of a laced feather.

The Wyandotte is a breed of chicken originating in the United States. The first examples of the breed appeared in 1870s. Wyandottes are a docile, dual-purpose breed kept for their brown eggs and for meat. They appear in a wide variety of color patterns, and are popular show birds. The Wyandotte lays pale brown or tan eggs and usually has a white ring of feathers around its neck. Wyandotte hens are devoted mothers.

Appearance:

The Wyandotte is a medium sized bird with a rose comb and clean legs. The chicken feathers are broad and loosely fitting. The area around the vent is very fluffy. The legs are yellow, although some silver laced may have grey.

Utility Aspects:

The hens also make great setters. It is sometimes difficult for natural insemination to occur, due to the number and thickness of feathers in the tail area.

Weight

The hens weigh around 6 pounds and the cocks weigh around 8½ pounds.

Eggs

The hens (females) will lay around 200 eggs a year with an exceptional hen laying around 240 eggs a year. The eggs are brown or tinted.
