Blue Laced Red Wyandotte


 

We are extremely happy with the line that we have, the lacing is perfect, each red feather is outlined in splash (white), blue or black. These are huge, vigorous and true to type with excellent colouring. They are friendly, active and outgoing, making them excellent for free ranging and foraging.

Blue Laced Red Wyandottes (BLRW) are relatively new to North America but are not a new colour variety, they were accepted into the German Standard of Perfection in 1929. However, they are not yet recognized by the American Poultry Association. BLRW have also been called Blue Laced Gold and Violet Laced.

Wyandottes stand out in the flock, not only because of their beautiful colouring but because of their rose combs, which are less likely to suffer damage in freezing temperatures, and yellow legs. They were created in the United States in the 1870's and the first color, Silver Laced, was accepted into the American Standard of Perfection in 1883.

Wyandottes were developed to be a dual purpose breed, hens are good egg layers, laying 200 240 eggs per year and roosters finish at a good size for the table. These are big birds, roosters weighing around 8 lbs and hens 6 lbs.
