Silver Laced Wyandotte Chickens were named after the Native American tribe of Wendat and are known as one of the most beautiful breeds. With silvery-white feathers edged with shiny black, Silver Laced Wyandottes will be a lovely addition to your backyard flock. Wyandotte chickens are deep and wide-bodied birds, are docile and good brown egg layers. They mature quickly and are a great dual-purpose option. Their close-fitting rose comb is an advantage in the cold climates of Ohio and other northern regions where single combs can sometimes freeze.
