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.

Mt. Healthy has the best comets!We ordered our girls From Mt. Healthy last year and couldn't be happier! We also have Bl. Australorps and Buff Orps. These are fine birds but too much energy is given to making a bigger frame. We sell eggs at a Farmers Market, and the 5 Comets we have always made their contribution to the cause so we will be going with the Comets almost 100% now. Of course, they will come from Mt. Healthy!

My best layer yet!My hens are now on there first molt and are still laying a couple eggs a week. During there first 13 month laying cycle they layed 80% or more for over 9 months and layed at 90% for for 6 months. the result would be an average of 300 eggs per hen. nice large brown eggs(not light or dark just right)

Wonderful Pet and Layers!We ordered 15 and received them in January. These are the best chickens we have ever had! They were lively and healthy when we got them. They are reliable layers and lay nice size brown eggs. Our girls roam the farm and can not wait to greet me when I come home from work. They love people and really are enjoyable. They are docile and quiet and love to be picked up. Written by Sandy White on Wed 6 Nov 2013 5:11:57 PM GMT
