This variety of Wyandotte is relatively new and came to the United States from England a short time ago. We were able to get our stock from an outstanding breeder here in the states prior to his "closing the door" on this variety and feel fortunate to perpetuate the Blue Laced Red Wyandotte gene pool. The original development of these came from crossing Silver Laced and Golden Laced varieties of Wyandotte's. After much work the Blue Laced Red was developed from this cross. The blue gene will color the chicks either light blue or dark blue in the lacing (the area around the reddish colored feathers) in both the baby chicks and the mature birds. Therefore you may have birds that vary somewhat in appearance but still display the beautiful colors of this very rare and unusual chick. Mature Blue Laced Red Wyandotte's lay brown eggs and are medium in size with the deep - round -Wyandotte appearance.
As a reminder, to help ensure a safe arrival to you, the minimum number of chicks for each order prior to April 1st is 25. On and after April 1st, the minimum number of chicks required is 15. You can mix and match any type of baby chick in your order to reach the applicable chick minimum order. If ordering any bantams, we require a minimum of 15 bantams per order.

Customer Product Reviews
I decided to raise 4 of these for 4 H and they have been so friendly, each one has its own personality. I ended up with 3 roosters and 1 hen, sadly a rooster got rye neck he is however the most friendly bird, the other 2 roosters are so silly, and the hen is a shy but pretty show hen.
Just got my BLR Wyandottes today and they are just the cutest little guys I've ever seen! The one rare chick given for free died in transport *sad face* but all 15 BLR's got here safe and sound! They love being handled, so far, and just discovered the water holder a bit ago and their food. They are very comical so far as well. Super excited to raise these babies!
This last spring I ordered 15 Blue Laced Wyandottes from you and I am beyond happy with my order!! My babies came healthy and happy! Your staff was kind, helpful, and answered every question I had! Plus they kept me updated on where my chicks were and when I could pick them up!! So today, as I'm watching my beauties scratch, cluck, and a couple attempt to crow for the first time, I knew I HAD to send in a review! Thank you SO much for these beautiful birds! I recommend you to ALL my friends, and asked my local feed store to only order from you in the future! Thank for being so professional!!
I just received my order of healthy happy chicks, and have to say my first time ordering chicks online was a fantastic experience. I would recommend Murray McMurray to anyone who wants more options than your local farm supply store.
We ordered a small flock of Blue laced Reds and are simply thrilled with the beauty and variety! All sweet lil slug eaters! PERFECT!
just received my order yesterday,25 blue laced red wyandottes 3 domiques and my mystery chick (which looks to me like a blue andalusian). Every chick came out of the box eager to eat and drink. All doing exceptionally well. Murray Mcmurray is the only place i'll ever purchase my chicks from. Great job m&m
In July 2012, I ordered a variety of chickens from you. I ordered 8 Blue Laced Red Wyandottes. I have had Golden and Silver Wyandottes before, but, I have to say that my favorites are these Blue Laced Wyandottes. Especially, the roosters, they are so friendly (none have been aggressive towards me), big, comical and beautiful. Their coloring is so unique with reds, oranges, blues and then the lacing. One of the rooster's I named "Big Stocky" he's huge and friendly and he's the first in the house at feeding time, he's a character. The hens are friendly, but in usual Wyandotte fashion very independent. I'm looking forward to ordering more of these chickens and the Colombian Wyandottes this spring.
We purchased our Blue-Laced Red Wyandottes from you this spring. Our kids were thrilled when they won champion and reserve champion in the American class at our county fair. All of the chicks we ordered have been healthy and good quality chickens. We are very pleased.
My Blue Laced Red Wyandotte rooster is over a year old and is very calm and friendly but still bold enough to chase down a hawk that is threatening his girls. I recommend this breed if looking for an outstanding rooster to watch over a flock but still be friendly to people and the hens. Thank you Murray McMurray!
I love my Blue Laced Reds! I have one cockerel and four pullets. The cockerel, Icy, is the sweetest thing ever! He falls asleep on my lap and will sit on my arm! The pullets are very nice too. They're all gorgeous birds.
I ordered 6 blue laced red wyandottes this past May and these are the friendliest breed of chicken I have. They are always following me around and are totally trusting of me. Their coloring is beautiful and I will definitely be ordering more of this breed in the future. I am so happy that you are offering this breed and I hope you continue on with this breed.
I will be ordering more Blue Laced Red Wyandottes soon. I have ordered 6 this year and I absolutely love this breed of chickens. They are so friendly and follow me everywhere and they are my favorite of all the breeds I have ordered from you. These chicks are getting more and more beautiful as each new feather comes in.
We received a male/female pair of Blue Laced Red Wyandottes in a special assorted bargain this year. These two are just the most beautiful birds and very friendly. Thanks so much.
We just got 5 of these, and they are gorgeous! They love people, and are just great to be around!!!
Our Wyandottes are healthy and beautiful. They are also laying big brown eggs. Thank you Murray McMurray Hatchery
These are the most beautiful chickens I've ever had. The female is beautiful with the blue petticoats. The male is absolutely gorgeous and our largest rooster. He is also our mellowest and hangs out in the coop and sings to the laying hens. Sometimes he sits in the nest box with his wife.
I ordered 18 breeds from you this year and my pair of Blue Laced Red Wyandottes are my favorites. The cockerel is large, stately, friendly and calm, as well as gorgeous. The pullet is large, friendly, calm, and beautiful with a red "dress" and beautiful "blue petticoats." I am very proud of "Wyatt and Charlotte." This pair of chickens always comes to the gate at bedtime for a special hand-fed bedtime snack. They are hard to resist!
The Blue Laced Red Wyandottes I received from McMurray are gorgeous birds. The color varations from light to dark blue make a stunning sight. Thanks for offering these unique chickens.
I ordered some Blue Laced Red Wyandottes from you 2 monthes ago. They are all very healthy and growing fast. They are absolutely the most beautiful chickens I have ever seen. Thanks for the wonderful poultry over the years!
