The Blue-Laced Red Wyandotte chicken is a breed developed around the late 19th to early 20th century. The breed was brought about through the crossing of the blue Andalusian and the Gold-Laced Wyandotte. When we began our search for chickens, we wanted something that was both unique and beautiful. The search was over when we discovered the Blue-Laced Red Wyandotte. With six young chicks we began to raise our first flock.
A unique aspect of the Blue-Laced Red Wyandotte is the genetic trait of the "blue" lacing contained on their feathers. The blue is actually a product of the parent of the chicken and doesn't carry on directly to each and every offspring. The color can display as black, blue (slightly lightened black), or splash (entirely lightened) phase. This will be the lacing color of that chicken for its entire life. When breeding blue x blue, you can get chicks in all three lace colors.
