McMurray Hatchery Silver Laced Wyandotte
The Silver Laced is the original variety of Wyandotte chicken — other varieties were developed from it later with crosses from other breeds. This breed is an outstanding example of American poultry breeding ingenuity, and is one of the most beautiful breeds we offer. This is an excellent variety for exhibition. 

Silver Laced Wyandottes are colorful, hardy, and hens are productive layers. Their broad-feathered, smooth fitting silver-white plumage is sharply marked with lustrous greenish black edging. Their close-fitting rose comb and good body size are valuable assets for colder weather and winter laying. Cold weather doesn't seem to bother them at all as their hardiness and vigor keep hens laying straight through the winter. Wyandottes have good dispositions and make an excellent choice for families with backyard flocks and urban settings. 

Silver Laced Wyandotte hens lay a nicely shaped, good-sized egg varying from light-to-rich brown, and will set some.

Day-old baby chicks vary from almost black to light, silvery gray, and many have contrasting light and dark stripes on the back.
