The Silver Laced Wyandotte chicken breed is the most popular of the Wyandotte chicken variety and a great American heritage chicken breed. This breed was originated in the early 1870s in New York state. The Silver Laced Wyandotte is a much cherished chicken breed for all that has experience with them. They are a good choice for pastured poultry, free range chickens and pet chickens. From their very striking looks to their consistent production, they are a great choice for a backyard chicken flock. The Silver Laced Wyandotte's have white feathers that are bordered by black creating the lacing appearance that they are named for and the baby chicks are for sale online here at chickensforbackyards.com. The tail feathers are black and very fluffy, some owners will occasionally trim and clean the area to prevent matting of their delicate tail. Having pea combs, they are very cold hardy birds, but as with any breeds, they prefer to be nestled in their cozy chicken coops in extremely cold weather. The Wyandotte produces a good number of brown eggs throughout the year, approximately 200. The color of the eggs are tinted to light brown and are medium to large egg size and a good buy for raising chickens for eggs. Hens can be broody and make great mothers for baby chicks. A fully developed hen can weigh about 6 pounds and roosters will be up to 7 ½ pounds.
