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. In 2014 we used a Jerry Foley rooster and blended it with our production type wyandottes for first stage project and developed this color. 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®.

We are first-time chicken keepers and ordered 15 chicks from Cackle. Eighteen healthy chicks arrived, though one died a month later from malnutrition from a beak deformity. We loved that we were able to order five different breeds, all of which are as described– cold hardy, friendly, and very healthy. They are now five months old and were very chipper when we released them into the yard this morning while it was 18 degrees out. Our friendliest birds are the Speckled Sussex, followed by Buff Orpington, Cinnamon Queen, Easter Egger and Black Laced Red Wyandotte.
I have two of these girls and they are so healthy and big and beautiful. They are very curious about things around them – they run up to my cat to check him out! I love these birds and plan on getting the blue laced next year!!
Black laced red Wyandotte’s
I ordered my baby chicks this spring and can’t say enough about how much I love them ! They all came healthy and all grew to be full size happy and healthy! Beautiful eggs and also very friendly birds , eat right out of my hand ❤️ I will order from this company again !
I ordered 3 pullets and 1 roo as part of my first order with Cackle Hatchery. I received 4 pullets and all did extremely well. My chickens should start laying soon. I am very happy with the birds and with the service I received. Will be ordering some turkeys next year.
Beautiful, and do well in the cold
They are beautiful and built for the cold. They aren’t very hearty when they are babies.
Absolutely love these chickens. They are very pretty and also very sweet. Would recommend them to anyone who would like to add to their flock. Good egg layers too. We get hot and humid here and was concerned at first but kept bottles of ice water in their water to keep them cool. They did great. And thank you Cackle Hatchery, I ordered 12 chicks received 15, 2 died they just didn’t make the trip so I got 13 living which is very cool

Very Pleased with Your Service/Chicks.
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.
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.
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!!!!

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.
Cackle Hatchery is the best
Very positive review from Enloe Ranch in Texas. We ordered 5 black Laced red pullets and Cackle even though in a extra pullet! The chicks arrived on 5/17/16 very healthy and happy. Thanks Cackle Hatchery!!!
Baby’s came in this morning sadly one did not make it threw shipping but rest are very active and happy and eating lots they loved the crumbled boiled egg gave them the boost they needed
Love this Breed
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 😉

Our chicks made it yesterday. They all like and act in great shape after a short drink they went right to eating and running around.

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.
