This is a Gold Laced Wyandotte breeding pen with a couple of Blue laced Gold Wyandotte hens.
When we set a dozen of our Wyandotte eggs you will get mostly gold laced chicks with the possibility of a blue laced chick. These are not blue laced red Wyandotte chickens. We do not separate chicks by colours at the hatch but sell them as a group, so you will get gold laced Wyandotte chicks with the possibility of a blue laced chick when you hatch eggs or pick up your chicks.
Our Gold Laced Wyandottes are a combination of three unrelated lines from AB and QC. We have been working with this breed since 2015 and we consider the Wyandotte to be one of our hardiest and best laying breeds. These dual-purpose roosters are huge and definitely large enough for any family dinner. Their rose combs are not a frostbite worry for us, which is definitely something to consider if you live in a colder area. The chicks are strong and fast growing and the beautiful hens are great foragers that lay an incredible amount of large eggs.
The Wyandotte is a docile dual-purpose breed of chicken originating in the United States and is renowned for its round curvy body and its good size and healthy vigour. The Wyandotte is a breed that suits both free range and confinement in a run and is kept for both eggs and meat. They appear in a wide variety of color patterns and are popular show birds.
The Wyandotte is named after the Wyandotte Native American tribe. The first examples of this breed appeared in 1870s and were of the Silver Laced variety, which was admitted to the American Standard of Perfection in 1883. The Gold Laced variety originated in Wisconsin and was admitted in 1888. Hens are excellent layers of light tinted eggs. They will lay approximately 240 or more large eggs a year. The Golden Laced variety are harder to find.
