Silver Laced Wyandotte

The Wyandotte is a breed of hen originating in the United States. The first examples of the breed appeared in 1870s. No-one really knows which breeds were used to create the Wyandotte breed but we do know that the first variety was the Silver Laced.

They are large birds with a particularly rounded appearance. They have broad bodies and are full feathered. The hens have a deep breast and backside, which shows that they are good layers. The Wyandotte has yellow legs with a round, short head, rose comb, bright red ear lobes and reddish bay eyes. They are a good dual-purpose breed.

The Silver Laced Wyandotte has white feathers with black edges on every feather, an effect called lacing. The tail is black and they should have yellow legs. The silver laced Wyandotte was the base for all other colours.

Wyandottes are docile birds. They lay well and chicks tend to be strong and are quick growers. Their attractive curvy shape, generally good disposition and many attractive colour patterns make them a good choice for hobbie keepers and breeders alike.
