    I am in love with this coloring on a chicken. I know that Sebrights and Wyandottes come in silver laced. Are there any other breeds that can have that coloring too? I'm wanting to find some to add to our flock. They are so gorgeous!

    Don't forget Cochins.

    Most likely the Sebrights and Wyandottes. Polish are also quite tolerant, Cochins I'd doubt to be very tolerant, and my Brahmas usually just keep in the shade if it gets hot.

    My wyandottes handle the heat pretty well.

    it was 101 here today and our wyandottes don't seem to mind as long as there is shade and water.

    Our SLW's are very heat-tolerant, and they are also the most adventurous of all our hens in terms of free-ranging - which could be labelled fool-hardy in certain circumstances. They're really pretty, but the GLW's are even more beautiful, I think. And a little less visible out in the pasture...
