Before You Order
When you place your order, we will ship within 2 weeks of the order date.
We update our inventory on the website on Tuesday afternoons. If a particular breed shows up as “out of stock,” please check again after we have updated the inventory.
We cannot reserve chickens, even if the breed that you want is not currently available. If you would like to get 4-5 week old or 6-7 week old chickens from us, then you will need to place an order through our website for one or more of the breeds that we list as being available.
We will send you an email with shipping information when your order ships, but we will not contact you with shipping information prior to that.
Regardless of the shipping date, your credit card will be charged when you place your order because we do not have a way to delay payments.
One of the most beautiful, stately breeds, the Silver-Laced Wyandotte is a moderate layer of light brown eggs.
Available at several different ages (see below). The hen in the photo shows how they look once they reach maturity.
I originally raised Silver-Laced Wyandottes for my daughter-in-law who wanted a pretty chicken that would lay well and be docile enough for the grandchildren to collect the eggs from. They are friendly – but not cuddly.
These are the original Wyandotte, and the feathering is a shiny black with a green sheen. Each feather is then edged in a contrasting white. They lay around 200 light brown eggs a year. Silver-Laced Wyandottes were on the ALBC’s “Priority” list until 2016 when backyard chicken lovers had brought the numbers back from its threatened state.
