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®.
