- Black Laced Red Wyandotte Chicken
These beautiful chickens have the addition of a double dose of Mahogany color to them and are much darker than the Black Laced Gold Wyandotte. They work well in confinement or free range and make a great back yard type chicken. Cackle Hatchery® currently offers the production type/line and not show type. The Black Laced Red Wyandotte is not currently recognized by the Standard of Perfection; however, several are working on getting this color recognized. This chicken makes an excellent pet and is good for eggs and/or meat.
NOTE: In 2014 Cackle Hatchery® started using a better descriptive name for our Wyandottes. With the emerging of the Blue Laced Red Wyandotte and other colors, we feel it would be less confusing to have a full descriptive breed name. So the “Red Laced Wyandotte” are now called Black Laced Red Wyandotte by Cackle Hatchery®.

Very Pleased with Your Service/Chicks. Review by Dan B
Ordered 15 Hens, Received 18 Chicks, One very small, lethargic chic was in dire straits upon arrival, could not stand or drink under own power, we were able to get some water in it with a dropper but it passed soon after.
The rest were much larger very alert and quick to take to the warm water and food they were all quieted down and under the brooder within half an hour. Just a handful of hours later all were romping around like toddlers between naps making their quiet happy chirps. Impressive feat to ship that far in cold snap and do so well.
Thank You Very Much. (Posted on 5/22/2019)
Excellent quality Review by melissa
I had to have each of the laced wyandotte verietys. I was sceptical about this red and now I'm more than pleased. Amazing looking bird, very hearty and a fine producer of brown eggs. (Posted on 4/15/2019)
Beautiful Birds Review by misty
We bought 15 pullets and 2 roos and they are grown now and such out standing birds. They are big and the red color is really red...we love them and they are laying even in this cold snap. Would like to say they are well worth the money...calm,very large well sprung out breasts and nice size eggs for there first ones layed!!!!

Awesome Review by Tom D
This was our second order with Cackle Hatchery, they first time we went with Golden and Silver laced wyandotte. This time we went with the reds. They arrived healthy with zero loss during shipping, just like last time. These birds are beautiful, the red in them is not subtle, it really stands out. We cant wait to see them as adults. If they are as great looking as they are as chicks we may go exclusively Reds. The Wyandotte breed is very hardy and we zero issues with them in 16 below 0 weather. Their low comb is a plus in cold weather. (Posted on 5/17/2017)

Love this Breed Review by Connie
We ordered 2 doz Black Laced Red Wyandottes May of 2015. Such a beautiful, sweet chicken. Our Buffs and Astralorps were mean compared to this breed. Ordering 2 more dozen. Great layers and good meat chickens.....although we ate the Buffs instead ;)

Thank You! Review by Jon & Jennina New York April 2015
I just wanted to take a moment to let you know that we are very pleased with our order. This is the best batch of chicks we have gotten so far. We did lose one in shipment, which was sad, but the rest recovered very nicely from their journey to us and are doing great. (Posted on 11/6/2015)
