The Wyandotte chicken is an American breed of chicken developed in the 1870s. The Blue Laced Red Wyandottes are beautiful chickens that have a blue laced red color pattern which is buff/red in color with a blue that looks just like grey around the edge of every feather. This chicken makes an excellent pet and is good for eggs and/or meat. 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. Cackle Hatchery® only offers at this time our production type/line not a show type. The Blue Laced Red Wyandotte is not currently recognized by the Standard of Perfection; however, several are working on getting this color recognized.
NOTE: “The blue laced red wyandotte does not breed a true blue color. The blue lacing color will be very light on some, a very good blue lacing on others and some will have a very dark blue/black lacing on others. Just like other blue colored breeds they do not breed true to the same shade of blue. “
