Wyandotte Chicken Character
Wyandottes are generally a docile hen, they are not known for being aggressive or for bullying, however, if they are in a great number compared to another breed they can dominate. They do like to forage and free roam and would not do very well in long term confinement if there was not enough space or they did not have enrichment. They can be mixed with most other breeds, perhaps be cautious with very delicate bantams such as Polands, they are friendly and can be hand tamed but might never be a lap chicken, they like people and are naturally inquisitive but don’t really like to be handled too much. They lay well for a pure breed and are not known for being broody, they can lay up to 200 light brown eggs a year, they are also known for being good winter layers.
