Gold Deathlayer chickens were first imported into the US in 2019 from Germany and are rumored to lay eggs until the day they die! If their amazing egg producing capabilities aren't appealing enough for you, their irresistible good looks should certainly earn them a spot in your backyard chicken coop.
Originating in Germany, this rare chicken breed is a master at producing tons of medium to large bright white eggs. Hence their German name, Totleger, literally meaning "Death Layer". This breed can date back to Germany as far as 400 or more years ago and a recent German census reports roughly only 1,500 Deathlayer chickens left in Germany. However, with the help of fellow backyard chicken enthusiast we are confident their endangered population will rise up and thrive.
This rare chicken breed has two color varieties, Gold Deatherlayer and Silver Deathlayer, with our Gold color variety being the most rare and sought after. Their flat comb, green and purple sheen popping out of their orange and gold striped feathers and deep black eyes are one of the most eye appealing rare chicken breeds on our farm. With their spectacular unique looks and rumored to lay until the day they die, the Gold Deathlayer deserves a spot in your backyard chicken coop. Not to mention, they have one of the coolest names in the chicken kingdom.

Shipping: You will receive an automatic email and text message when your chicks ship along with tracking info. Chicks usually arrive in the morning 1-2 days later and your local Post Office will call you for pickup. Chicks are never delivered to your home address, even if you used a home address for your shipping address.
What I Need:Everything you need can usually be purchased at your local feed store. Chick starter feed, waterer, brooder (cardboard box, plastic storage bin, bathtub, or even a kiddie pool are popular), pine shavings, thermometer and a heat lamp or heat source. Baby chicks require heat of about 95 degrees their first week of life. Second week you can lower the temperature to 90 degrees and so on with every week going down 5 degrees until 6-8 weeks old or when they are ready to go "outside".
How Do My Chicks Survive Shipment?:Baby chicks do not need food or water for the first 72 hours of life. Ingesting their yolk sac gives them the nutrition they need to survive the journey from Feather Lover Farm's hatching facility to you! Shipping day-old chicks helps ensure a safe arrival since they will usually be just 2 days old when you receive them. Our packaging is professional with a brand new chick shipping box, nesting material and warm long lasting heat packs depending on the time of the year. Your chicks will look like they just hatched out of a nest when you open the box and jump into your arms, thinking you are their mother hen!
