Golden Laced Wyandotte: There’s so much to love! These beautiful birds are a stunning addition to your backyard. They’re the starlets of the poultry industry. You’ll love their statuesque figure, their long shapely legs, and their fluffy, glamorous, laced feathering. They’ll grow to have a lovely rose comb.
These birds are great for someone who is just getting started with chickens!
Your chicks will grow to a large size. Roosters will weigh upwards of 8 pounds and hens will grow to be around 6.5 pounds. They’re good egg layers and you can expect that they’ll produce around 200 light brown eggs per year. They’ll even lay in colder weather as their fluffy feathering makes them hardy in cooler weather.
Golden Laced Wyandotte hens have a tendency to go broody. These birds incubate their eggs well and care for their young. They’re great for producing meat and laying eggs.
These birds need less land than other varieties. Plus, they’re fantastic foragers.
As with many starlets, the Golden Laced Wyandotte has a strong personality. These birds can be divas. Don’t be surprised if your chickens makes a lot of noise. Some find the constant clucking endearing.
