Deathlayer Eggs (1 Dozen)
Spectrum Poultry is now accepting orders for the 2023 spring season. We have opened up our website for preorders!
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 carries the Silver variety.
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.
We begin shipping out Deathlayer hatching eggs in March/April and chicks in May weather permitting. Deathlayer chicks are more fragile than the other breeds we carry. We need to make sure the weather is warm enough for them to have safe travels.
Orders can be placed directly through our website. Payments are required in full at the time of purchase. Once your order is placed, that will reserve your spot in line. Orders are sent out depending upon when payment is received and availability. Please check with us on your estimated shipping date prior to placing your order. That way you have a rough idea when you can expect your chicks or hatching eggs to arrive.
We will begin shipping out hatching egg orders and filling local chick orders the beginning of March. It will be safe for us to start shipping out chicks in April. We usually have a wait list for both eggs and chicks.
