Golden Comet Chickens (as hatched)
Mt Healthy Hatcheries Comets (as hatched/males & females)
The Comet has been widely acclaimed in all areas of the world where brown eggs are preferred. The reason is simple. The Comet pullet is easily one of the finest brown egg layers available today. They mature early and lay eggs of excellent size and quality. She is an extremely quiet bird, that seems to be able to withstand the colder, non-insulated, laying houses of the small flock owner, better than most breeds. The Comet is a buff sex-link strain. The chicks may be sexed by color, pullets red-roosters white. When mature, the Comet pullet is golden red in color but has some white showing through in her neck and back.
My FavoritesOf all the hens I have had over the years the Gold Comet is my absolute favorite. They lay wonderful brown eggs and are the most quiet, friendly hens I have ever owned. Over time i have tried different breeds of hens, but I always go back to my Gold Comets.
Comet chickensI highly recommend these birds. I got my chicks in spring 2013, and by fall they were laying one egg each every day, all through that fall, all through winter (unheated coop with only natural light coming in), and all through 2014 spring, summer, and early fall. One nice large brown egg from each hen, every day without fail. I am only now ( in late October 2014) sometimes down to 3 eggs a day, but their performance last year and this year have already made them a great value. Plus they are calm, curious, nice-looking, friendly, and a lot of fun to watch.
