The Wyandottes raised by Greenfire Farms have taken a convoluted route to arrive in your coop: They are American chickens with an Indian name that picked up much of their showy genetics in Europe. Wyandottes first appeared in the United States in the 1870s, the product of chicken breeders in New York and Massachusetts. Scholars debate the mix of breeds that gave rise to the Wyandotte, but it is likely that at the Hamburg contributed the neat rose comb that is evident in the breed. The new breed was named after a Northeastern tribe of Native Americans, the Wyandotte Nation.

In the 21st Century, a striking color variant was introduced into the Wyandotte gene pool. Allan Brooker, a Briton who spent a decade quietly breeding Wyandottes, was able to create the most convincing lavender chicken we have ever seen, a large fowl Wyandotte. A deep lavender color is apparent even in the chicks of this variety. In adults, the lavender set off against the bright red comb and yellow legs make for a truly striking appearance. These birds are slow to sexually mature, but once mature hens usually lay a good quantity of cream-colored eggs. The roosters are gentle and sociable, and the hens are equally docile.

Black split to lavender chicks are expressed as BLACK and are capable of producing lavender offspring.

Hatching Eggs - When hatching eggs from this breed, you want to thoroughly check the chicks that hatch for the presence of feathers on the legs. If you notice any feathers on either leg then you should plan to cull the chick. These birds shouldn't be used in a breeding flock.

The merits of every bird should be assessed as they reach adulthood.
