Westfalische Totleger Silver "Deathlayer" Chicks



    Marek's Vaccine is STRONGLY recommended for this breed. If you wish to have your chicks vaccinated for Marek's Disease please add one vaccine to cart at checkout. One vaccine will vaccinate the entire order of chicks. 


    There will be minimum of six chicks per order.  You may select different breeds to meet the minimum order total of six chicks. These will be straight run chicks, meaning that they will NOT be sexed as either male or female.


    The Silver Westfalische Totleger, aka Silver “Deathlayer" hen is said to “lay an egg each day” until the day she dies—but there is a slight misconception in that statement. This beautiful breed molts and takes breaks from their laying cycle to regrow their feathers just like all other chicken breeds, but statement that they 'lay an egg each day' is true because there seems to be no laying difference between the amount of eggs that a young hen will lay compared to much older hens, hence appropriately giving these birds the proper name, “Deathlayer”.  


    The Silver Deathlayer is a very rare and fragile breed of bird which can make finding them difficult. This beautiful bird has only recently come over to the United States. Even in their native country of Germany, they are rare. Hens lay a medium white egg. 


    Chicks will be shipped by USPS 1-2 day Express Mail on Tuesday or Wednesday of each week. The chicks will be 24 hours or less old when shipped. Each box will include the UniHeat pad to keep the chicks warm and Grogel for a food/hydrations source, as well as coconut netting for flooring and fruit in each box, free of charge.


    We will communicate with our customers at least one week in advance to give them a heads up on arrival times, confirming that shipment works for their schedule. If you have a preferred week of arrival, please add us a note at checkout and we will do our best to make your preferred week of arrival happen, but please don't hate on us if we can't.
