The Deathlayer rare chicken breed originates from Germany and they come in two colors: gold and silver. Both of which have been imported with care by Greenfire Farms as a preservation method for this species. They’re so rare, they don’t have an entry on Wikipedia. Imagine that!
Gold Deathlayer chickens are beautiful and colorful. The roosters are especially well dressed in their fine comb and front, back, and cape feathers. The Gold Deathlayer is always ready for a fancy event with its iridescent black tail feathers. Dressed to impress.
Deathlayers – both gold and silver – are soft, docile, and active. Their tight comb makes them perfectly adaptable for our weather in the Midwest. They love to forage for their food as well. They love their daily walks around your urban farm and – just like you – don’t like being cooped up all day.
Since Gold Deathlayers lay 290 eggs annually, that’s enough to make 2,320 pancakes every year! Now, that’s a lot of pancakes.

When searching for a pet chicken, your family should consider this rare chicken breed. The chicks mature in about 18 weeks which is the average. The hens weigh 1.5 kilos and the roosters weigh 2.2 kilos.
If your city yard can accommodate several Gold Deathlayers, then you’ll only need one rooster for every twelve hens. Unlike most chicken breeds, Gold Deathlayers lay eggs for their whole lifetime – about ten years.
