The Golden Comet hen is one of the sweetest and most docile breed of chicken. They have great personalities and lay light brown eggs. All of our hens have been hatched and hand raised either on our farm or by local families participating in our hatching program, making them even friendlier and well socialized!
Golden Comets are a hybrid variety that come from combining a White Rock or Delaware Hen with a Rhode Island Red or New Hampshire Red Rooster. They are one of the few breeds that you can tell the Roosters from the Hens at birth. The roosters being born white and the hens the "golden" color. These "Hybrids" (Cross between two standard breeds) lay more eggs than both of their parents. While most breeds stop laying eggs for 3 months in the winter, Golden Comets will continue laying and can lay up to 330 eggs a year. They are also great foragers (eat less purchased food and more bugs and weeds) and do well in both warm and cold climates.
We supply our customers with USDA certified organic chicken feed that is grown by a group of Amish farmers in Pennsylvania. The feed provides a well balanced diet and has oyster shells to ensure the eggs have strong shells.
Golden Comets do well down to -20 degrees!
