    I got some Silver laced Wyandottes last summer to give them a try. They’re cranking out the eggs through the winter when our other dual purpose breeds have pretty much stopped. Add that to the rose comb so the rooster combs don’t get frostbitten and they’re a definite winner so far. Next test is whether I get some hens wanting to set in the spring. I’d rather they raise my meat birds and replacement hens instead of me having to fuss with the incubator and heat lamps.
