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®.
