The “ancestors” of Golden Laced Wyandottes originated in Wisconsin and were called Winnebagoes. By 1880 they received their present-day name. This variety is a beautiful combination of rich golden bay laced with lustrous greenish black. The general feather pattern is very similar to the Silver Laced Wyandottes. A beautiful bird for exhibition.

Customer Product Reviews
I got one golden laced Wyandotte and it is so tame and sweet. Whenever I come to feed them or change their water it always comes over and will hop up into my lap or on my arms and sit there. I don't know how well it lays yet as it is only about 5 weeks old.
These guys are tough! I have one hen left from my first flock of chickens I got in 2005.... It's a Golden Laced Wyandotte!! She'll be nine years old this year and has survived a very cold winter here in Minnesota (-26 for a low!). I like how this chicken has a very flat, low comb so it doesn't get frostbite.
Thank You! I just received our shipment of Golden Laced Wyandottes :0) I had received the free chick a few years ago and it turned out to be a GLW rooster...we fell in love with the breed! A very sweet, easy to raise breed. Our chicks arrived this morning peeping and all well. Thank you for great service, great shipping and the cutest, healthiest little chicks.
I got an order of Barred Rocks and my Golden Wyandotte was the extra chick. It was slower growing than the rocks but eventually outgrew the others and became the dominant rooster. It is a beautiful big bird and a calm good rooster to the flock and is not aggressive towards people.
After two years of messing around with "farm" chickens my daughter bought these to take to the 4-H fair. The cockerel won best in class and the pullet best in class and best overall female. These birds are beautiful and full feathered. Perfect!!!!! Looking forward to next year and a different breed of Wyandottes. Sincerly, Whynott Wandotte Farms
These birds are lovely. The markings are striking and I love when they're out in the sun. My hens are fat and robust and have a very nice personality. They are reliable layers with a med sized brown egg.
These golden girls are one of the most GORGEOUS breeds I've ever had. They're fabulous to have around the farm with their sweet personalities and good egg laying ability. A flock of 50-50 Golden Laced and Silver Laced Wyandottes will beautify your homestead like nothing else can!
These are great birds! In the two years I've put them in the fair, I've gotten seven blue ribbons! They are beautiful on a summer afternoon, their plumage set off in the sun. And they are just dark enough that in the winter they look lovely against the white snow. I use them for 4-H and laying (which they're also good at). I plan to use them int the future!
