Our new E-book "Breeding and Culling Blue Laced Red Wyandottes" is now available.
I receive many emails each week seeking advice on breeding this variety, so we decided to put all the information that we have acquired over the last 7 years into a E-book and make it available to you.
Nov. 2013...I have some outstanding SLW 2013 Cockerels and Pullets ready to show or breed for sale for $100 each, some that are not as nice...but very good breeder quality that will produce outstanding chicks for $100 a pair. I am cutting back for winter and i will not keep as many breeders this year as I have in the past..now is your chance to get your start with very good birds.
I have nice pairs of BLRW and SLW available to purchase, also BLRW and SLW cockerels..all birds are this years hatch. You can contact me by email to work out the details.These will be nice show birds with no faults. The last few years I have won Best SLW at two APA Nationals and the Ohio National, this is a great chance to get breeding stock from a top line of SLW.
I have started the process of getting the BLRW accepted into the APA...but I need your help. Go to the BLR Wyandotte page to get the latest information...and thanks!

It started out innocent enough....we bought some land out in the country and my wife kept talking about these "cute" bantam ducks and Wyandottes that she had seen as a kid growing up in the middle of no where. I always loved having animals and what the heck my mom and dad always kept some chickens and ducks on our small farm when I was growing up.
So after much searching we did finally locate a pair of gray call ducks and some Blue Laced Red Wyandottes, I even made my wife and kids a nice bench to set on while they watched the chickens and call ducks chase bugs in their coops. Then we attended a poultry show and we purchased a nice pair of calls here and there and couldn't pass up the beautiful SQ Silver Laced Wyandottes, by the time I found a nice pair of Butterscotch Call ducks we had full blown call duck fever..now we are hooked with no cure in sight. The little buggers are very addictive to watch and raise, so now we would like to pass the same call duck and Wyandotte fever on to you..
I hope you will browse through our website and let us know if there is anything you need from our small waterfowl and poultry farm.

The plastic tubs from Wal-Mart work great for call ducklings.....just make a elevated floor out of hardware cloth so the little pigs stay dry. Hang a 100 watt bulb and you have a very inexpensive brooder. We cut a large square in the lid and attach hardware cloth. The light can rest on top of the hardware cloth. Keeps out the drafts and the young kids.....
