Golden Laced Wyandotte at 1 week

Wyandottes are an American breed - they are docile birds kept for their brown eggs and meat They can lay around 200 eggs a year and some will become good setters. The Silver Laced was the original color, with the Golden Laced developed latter. Because they have a rose comb and are heavier birds, they do well in colder climates.
