Wyandottes - There are many varieties and all of them make an extremely attractive bird. Calm, friendly and docile, easy to handle and child-friendly, ideal backyard bird, a real pleasure to own. Equally happy foraging outside or in confinement.
Welsummer- They lay dark chocolate brown eggs with speckles on them. Beautiful coloring, in my opinion. The author of that website said that the Welsummers were the friendliest breed they had on the farm.
