More Lace and Shimmer

A blog by Chicken Wrangler Sara

I recently posted pictures of the silver and gold laced Wyandottes.  They are quite lovely. There are also other laced chickens.

This is a blue laced red Wyandotte..This is a splash laced red Wyandotte.Not to be outdone by the lacey chickens, here is a Welsummer rooster.  His feathers almost shimmer.  As with most species, he is more beautiful than the female Welsummer.

We hatched these birds from eggs we bought from a hatchery in a nearby town.  I think it was worth the drive and the money to add them to our flock.

  1. The Welsummer rooster is quite beautiful. However, the roosters at my grandmother’s farm were so aggressive. Okay, downright mean. As a child I was terrified of them and my grandmother used to have to shoo them away before I would go into the chicken lot to feed them. Give me a 17 hand stallion any day over a rooster. They are much sweeter.
