All our hens are between 5-8 months old and just reaching their laying age. Hens can lay for up to 4-5 years before they stop all together. Hens need up to 14 hours of sunlight to lay. Artificial lighting can be added to keep hens laying through the winter months when the sunlight is less. Fun fact - hens are born with an exact number of eggs she will lay in her life time, so even if she stops laying through the winter months, that just means she will be laying that much longer before she stops.
With silvery-white feathers edged with shiny black, Silver Laced Wyandottes will be a lovely addition to your backyard flock. Wyandotte chickens are deep and wide-bodied birds, are docile and good brown egg layers. They mature quickly and are a great dual-purpose option. Their close-fitting rose comb is an advantage in the cold climates of Ohio and other northern regions where single combs can sometimes freeze.
Average mature weight: roosters 7 1/2 lbs., hens 6 1/2 lbs.
