About Silver Laced Wyandottes

Silver Laced Wyandottes are a true dual purpose heritage breed originating in upstate New York. They are a high priority for breed preservation here and we are working hard to create and keep a closed genetic line unique to our farm.

Our Flock and Breeding

Round, short-backed Wyandotte breed type and clean lacing are our top priorities when breeding this bird. Their pattern requires three genes to be perfectly balanced to achieve the clean lacing that makes them unique. We carefully guard the genetics of this breed for that reason and avoid bringing in new bloodlines. Instead, we retain many cockerels and breed in pairs or very small flocks to keep our own wide genetic pool. Our flock originated with Jerry Foley's line and is now 8-10 generations removed. While there is always room for improvement, we are happy with the direction this flock is going. If your goal is exhibition, they have the potential to produce a competitive exhibition candidate. 


This breed is confident and confident and calm. The roosters are animated and fun characters, but kind to their hens and keepers. They have proven to be very aerial predator aware and are quick to hustle their hens to cover. The hens are independent and busy foragers. Occasionally, we get a more dominant personality in hens, but never aggressive. They tolerate small spaces and would be a good choice for a keeper with a confined coop or small yard. 

Egg Laying

While the breed was carefully bred for cold weather, we've found that if given adequate shade in our hot North Carolina climate, they are some of our best year-round layers. They lay medium sized cream colored eggs. In 2022 and 2023, they outperformed all of our breeds in number of eggs laid over the course of the year.
