Foley's Waterfowl & Poultry

Farm dedicated to breeding all of our poultry and waterfowl toward the A.P.A standard and preserving

the Wyandotte breed of poultry in both bantam and large fowl.

                 Silver Laced Wyandottes

I had a great year at the shows in 2014, I continue to double mate my SLW..which means more work and a bigger feed bill, but the great lacing I am getting on the pullets makes it worth it.

In a normal hatching season I will hatch and grow out 100 SLW chicks, however in a moment of weakness in 2013 I decided to grow out over 300 SLW large fowl chicks, trust me you don't want to ever do that. I did get a nice bump in the quality of my birds by doing it....I ended up keeping 5 cockerels and 10 pullets from the 300, I have to admit they are the best I have ever raised.

  I am concentrating on getting wider heads, wider bodies and size on them in 2014

I will be selling SLW chicks this hatching season (Jan-Mar 2014), I don't plan on taking chick orders at this time and will probably list the chicks on featherauction.com
