Wyandotte Chickens were developed in New York State and Wisconsin in the late 19th century and come in many colors. The Blue Laced Red Wyandotte is a buff color with blue lacing – an unusual color in chickendom. However, the blue color in chickens does not breed true, and you may receive blue, black, or splash chicks.
Wyandottes make a good dual-purpose breed. Hens lay around 4-6 light brown eggs each week in season. Wyandottes are very nice birds and are an excellent family-friendly breed. Read more about the Wyandotte Chicken on our Breed Spotlight over on the Meyer Hatchery Blog.
The color blue does not breed true. The chicks hatched from blue parents can be blue, black, or splash. You will receive hatchery choice colors when ordering. Read more about blue genetics in our Help Desk Article.
