Deathlayer Chicks (Westfalische Totleger)
Due to the high demand of chick sales, Spectrum Poultry chick orders placed after 7/26 are estimated to be available late August/September. We are still working on getting caught up with our current orders. Feel free to check out new updates on our Facebook page. http://facebook.com/spectrumpoultry Deathlayers aka Westfalische Totleger is an ancient German breed of chicken. A translation of its German name Totleger, means "death layer". This stunning breed is said to lay eggs until the day it dies! The history of this breed goes back more than 400 years. Their population has declined drastically over the centuries. With your help we can protect this beautiful rare breed. Greenfire Farms is the original importer who introduced Deathlayers into the United States. Their line is directly from Germany. Deathlayers come in two varieties, Gold and Silver Pencilled. Spectrum Poultry carrries the Silver variety. We have had our Deathlayer line for three years now.￼ We have found that the chicks are more fragile when they are young compared to the other breeds that we carry. They seem to need extra fluids and TLC when they are young. When we mail out Deathlayer chicks, we like to offer a couple extra as long as we have them available. *Chicks are sold as straight run. *Fertility is checked often and is excellent! We begin shipping out Deathlayer chicks in April/May weather permitting.j
