Golden Comet Chicken Breed Information and Chicken Facts


Golden Comet Chicken Breed Information:

The Golden Comet Chickens are one of 2 Modern Day production Brown egg laying strains from hybrid breeding from Cackle Hatchery®  that produce fast body development,  fast egg production and rich brown egg shell color. These strains will start to lay eggs at a younger age than most standard breeds and produce large/extra large big brown eggs. They are also color sexable as chicks for the first generation which are the chicks you receive,  cockerels  chicks are white, and the chicken pullets are more brownish red in color. Leg color is mostly yellow but will get some greenish color in the leg color. Feathering color varies with brownish feathers and white feathers on the hens. Feathering color varies from totally white to white with light to dark red feathers in shoulder feathers on the adult rooster. Chicks from this second generation will not be color sexable and will come in multiple colors. The parent stock is made from a proprietary Cackle Hatchery®  bloodline/stain of the Production Red male and the Rhode Island White female.
