Golden Comet Chickens
Golden Comets are one of three "Modern Day Brown" egg chicken breeds that were specifically developed as fast growth, quality egg laying chickens. These baby chickens are sex-link chickens, meaning can be easily sexed after hatching. Farmers interested in maintaining strict rooster to hen ratios are often found raising chickens that can be easily sexed as chicks.
These Golden Comet Chickens are a cross breed utilizing the White Rock Female and the New Hampshire Red Rooster. The Comet breed developed from this particular cross is a hardy and robust dual purpose breed with superior egg laying capabilities.
Golden Comet Chickens are a good backyard chicken breed because they tend to be quieter than other breeds and they can handle confinement quite well. These chickens are a good choice for a small farmer interested in raising chickens because they will do well in the winter in smaller uninsulated chicken coops.< br>
