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.

I have discovered that there are many, many breeds of chickens.  I have also come to believe Rachel’s goal is to own one of each breed.

I must admit some are quite pretty.  For example the Silver Laced and Golden Laced Wyandotte chickens are beautiful.

 

 

 

 

 

The outlining of their feathers is called “laced.” I think it is wonderful.

I can honestly say I have silver and gold in my back yard.

The  calming, therapeutic value of the chickens is sometimes worth more than the precious metals.
