Buff Laced Wyandotte is like a visual bonus added to your backyard. Birds of this variety have everything that a perfect hen should have – they lay great eggs and have good records in winter laying, their flesh is sweet, juicy and tender, they are both heat and cold hardy which makes them extremely resistant to climate changes, and they look beautiful. There is nothing more you can demand from a chicken. Moreover, their size, shape, and early-maturing qualities make them much-sought-after bird for practical purposes. Speaking of personality, they are docile and friendly, thus they are very good with children. Because of their strong personality, they get on well with other chickens too. In addition, Buff Laced Wyandotte birds are quite easy to handle. They are good foragers what makes them rather self-sufficient.

Buff Laced Wyandotte – History

Wyandottes originated in New York State as Silver Laced birds, large fowl with the colour and pattern of Sebright bantams. The name Wyandotte is associated with an American Indian tribe, the Wyandot, that is also known by the French name ‘Hurons’. As Wyandottes gained popularity, their advocates developed about 18 varieties, among others the Buff variant of the breed. All of the varieties are now recognized in the Standard of American Poultry Association (APA). The standard requires all Wyandottes to have rose combs regardless of feather colour. The Buff Wyandotte was admitted to APA in 1893. The most successful originator of this variation was George Brackenbury of New York. The Buff Wyandotte in the early 1900s was a popular variety of the Wyandotte family.

Their feet are ended with four straight and well spread toes. When it comes to plumage, the male is somewhat brighter in buff color than the female.

Buff Laced Wyandotte – Get an egg-cellent experience!

Have you ever wanted to try hatching your own chicken eggs? It is truly a rewarding and memorable experience! It can be especially exciting for your children to learn the incubation process and watch the chicks hatch after the wait. However, you have to keep in mind that fertilized eggs usually need to be ordered from a hatchery or from poultry farmers with roosters in their flocks. We sell a variety of fertile hatching poultry eggs for incubation. Therefore you can be quite sure they will grow into baby chicks if placed in an incubator or under a broody hen. Our collection of pure-bred chicken eggs is made up from all of the different varieties that we hatch. The eggs have a great fertility record which we constantly monitor in our hatchery as we incubate all eggs that are not sold. If you are looking to hatch a solid chicken, for eating or laying, our eggs may be what you are looking for. What is more, we deliver our top quality products without delay. We perform our job with a great passion and dedication because our customers’ satisfaction is the most important for us. However, hatching is a complex process, so if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

What Our Customers Say About Our Buff Laced Wyandotte (Large Fowl)

“I’m a bit late. I think it was last spring when we bought our first ever birds from Steve. A silver and buff laced Wyandotte and a POL Lohmann. The little Lohmann is amazing and so friendly – she started laying within 10 days and has laid an egg a day ever since throughout winter! The silver laced is the ‘Grand Dame’ admired by the neighbours as she struts around the garden. The only down side is that my urban kitchen garden has turned into their extended digging and feeding patch and they have an eye on burgling my greenhouse too! However, I’m hooked, so we are planning a move to Cornwall and looking for an acre or two, hopefully buying more from Steve’s excellent stock when we do. Very impressed by visiting the farm and seeing the layout and conditions the birds are bred in, chickens do need grass and they all have it. Good to see inspectors wandering around whilst we were there picking up our birds and they both looked as happy as we were. “

Pete Higgins Excellent

“I was very pleased with both last years hatching eggs and recently acquired Wyndotte pullets. Clean, healthy birds from a well run establishment. Thank you.”

Victoria Relph Excellent

“Hi Steve, Now the Christmas madness is over I just wanted to say a massive thanks for helping us out with our first venture with keeping chickens. They have been fantastic fun/very easy to look after and it’s like they are one if the family, just like you said when we were having cold feet about getting them. I think the service/ price and quality of the 2 chickens was great and more importantly for us the advice. I would have no hesitation in recommending Cheshire Poultry to anyone.”
