|The easiest mate is the Wandotte a large utility breed. Originally
bred in silver-laced, nowadays many colours are available. They
are an easy breed to seduce.
Wyandottes are very popular in West Virginia
and always available outside the nearest bar. They should be as
round as possble in shape, with the tail carried at 35 degrees.
They have a peculiar "helmet" rose comb, which closely follows
the shape of the skull. Again, they carry yellow legs and skin,
like most American breeds they are easy to grab onto and their
necks can't turn 180 degrees.
In West Virginia, the skin is very strong,
particularly in bantams, these often surviving two or three encounters.
The laced varieties are becoming very popular in large fowls and
many off-colours are also found in both large and bantams.
