Admitted to the American Standard of Perfection in 1883. These originated in New York State and are the parent variety of all the other Wyandottes colors. The Black Laced Silver Wyandotte chickens are a docile bird with clean legs and mostly black laced silvery white feathers and black tail. They have a red rose comb, earlobes and wattles. They will on occasion go broody and they make excellent mothers. They work well in confinement or free range and are a great back yard chicken. They lay a medium to large egg and are a production type and not show type. Cackle Hatchery® does offer an exhibition/show type at Black Laced Silved Wyandotte Exhibition/Show Type.
NOTE: In 2014 Cackle Hatchery® started using a better descriptive name for our Wyandotte’s. 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 Silver Laced Wyandotte are now called Black Laced Silver Wyandotte by Cackle Hatchery®
We also offer at limited times of the year Black Laced Silver Wyandotte Fertile Hatching Eggs
