The Blue Laced Red Wyandottes was developed in the 1870s. This smart American breed is a beautiful chicken that have a blue laced red color pattern which is buff/red in color, with a blue that looks just like grey around the edge of every feather. They’re excellent pets and they’re good for both eggs and meat. They will on occasion go broody and they make excellent moms! They work well both in confinement and free range and are a great backyard chicken.
