Golden Laced Wyandotte

 

Wyandotte’s are a favorite amongst backyard flock owners for their dependable egg laying, easy going nature, hardiness, and the great variety of beautiful feather patterns available. Wyandotte hens are excellent broodies and make very good mothers. They are gentle and elegant birds that are very social and vocal, often clucking softly just to say “hi” or remind you that it is “time for their treats”! Wyandotte’s have a heavy body, clean legs and a small rose comb. This robust and cold hardy breed is relatively easy to care for; a great decision for first time chicken buyers and those wanting a dependable winter egg layer. Wyandotte’s will thrive in free range situations and will also adapt well to confined environments. They lay an average of 220 nicely shaped light brown eggs (often speckled in white) per year. Mature males weigh an average of 9 pounds with the females weighing an average of 6 1/2 pounds. They are a dual purpose bird and their attractive "curvy" shape, sweet disposition and consistent ability to lay make them a good choice for fanciers as well as farmers.

 

Our search for exhibition quality Golden Laced Wyandottes began a few years ago. We noticed year after year, many of the West Coast's largest poultry shows had zero entries in the Golden Laced variety, and just one or two entered in the Silver Laced variety. How could one of the United States oldest and most beautiful breeds fall off of the proverbial map? I do like a challenge…and so our search began. Most of today's Golden Laced Wyandottes are smaller and lack the type written in the A.P.A standard. After a couple years of work, we are now thrilled to be offering these amazing beauties once again. Patience is a virtue, and in this case it's come to fruition. These birds are an excellent choice for exhibition, and a fantastic choice for your 4-H, F.F.A. or A.P.A. sanctioned shows.
