Silver Laced Wyandottes
Availability Display below is for the next several hatches. This breed is available for future dates. You can pick the date during the check out process. Green: available. Blue: limited availability. Red: not available.
The Silver Laced is the original Wyandotte and the other varieties were developed from it later with crosses on other breeds. It is an outstanding example of American poultry breeding ingenuity and is one of the most beautiful breeds we offer. It is colorful, hardy, and productive. The broadfeathered, smooth fitting plumage is sharply marked. The general appearance is silvery white and lustrous greenish black as each feather is edged in a contrasting color. The close-fitting rose comb and good body size are valuable assets for winter laying. Cold weather doesn't seem to bother them at all as their hardiness and vigor keep them laying straight through the winter. They lay a nicely shaped, good sized egg, varying from light to rich brown and will set some. This is another excellent variety for exhibition. Baby chicks vary from almost black to light silvery gray and many have contrasting light and dark stripes on the back.
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.

We have enjoyed our Silver Laced Wyandottes very much. Then hens are reserved but love to talk to me lol. Our Roos we recently made for dinner and they taste AMAZING, Excited for the girls to start laying. Thank you McMurray for wonderful birds.
Thank you for these beautiful birds!!! They are very pretty and quite docile! They will soon be laying and I can't wait! Thank you! Matthew
I am pleasantly suprised with the sweetness of this breed! I ordered several breeds this year but the Silver Laced Wyandottes are so sweet. As soon as I sit down they jump on my lap as fall asleep. I love them. Thank you!!
These are one of the most BEAUTIFUL breeds I've ever had. They're calm and friendly and are good layers throughout the year. A flock of 50-50 Silver Laced and Golden Laced Wyandottes is a gorgeous sight on the homestead!
I received my chicks in the mail this morning, and they arrived in great shape! Very energetic and happy. I also want to say how good the customer service was. They were very helpful and answered every question I had. I can't wait to see what my free exotic is, easy to pick out but can't tell the breed yet. Thanks!
Two years ago this month we bought our first McMurray chicks- equal parts of Silverlaced Wyandotte, RIR and Barred Rocks. They have proven to be the best layers, healthy, happy, good pets, good manure makers for our organic garden (and we live in the city). We are ordering more chicks to renew our flock now that the girls are finally aging out after working so hard.
WE ORDERED AND RECEIVED 25 HENS. THEY ALL ARRIVED IN EXCELLENT HEALTH AND ARE GROWING VERY WELL.THE MONTANA WINTER IS NOT BOTHERING THEM AT ALL, THANKS FOR SOME AWSOME CHICKENS WE WILL BE OREDERING AGIAN FOR THIS SPRING.
We added 2 SL Wyandottes in our order last spring. They have rapidly become family favorites. Very friendly and calm. One of them even perches on my husband's shoulder given the chance! They are now laying daily.
