Wyandotte History

Wyandottes originate from the United States and no one really knows which breeds were used to create the Wyandotte breed. They were first reported in the 1860s and the first variety was the silver laced variant. They are large chickens 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.

Wyandotte Behaviour

Wyandottes are docile birds and the hens are excellent broodies and make good mothers. 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 (varieties) make them a good choice for fanciers as well as farmers

Wyandotte Varieties

White, Blue, Buff, Red, Black, Barred, Partridge and Silver Pencilled, Silver, Gold, Blue and Buff Laced, and finally Columbian which has similar markings to the Light Sussex.

Wyandotte Status

Fairly common

- Andrew,

I love these birds so much The Wyandotte breed is by far my favorite I have gl blr and lavender Wyandottes and looking for salmon Wyandottes but I absolutely love these birds

Nice chicken for a small flock - Erica,

We bought 5 chickens last spring, 1 silverlaced wyandotte, 2 golden sexlinks, and 2 welsummers. 1 gsl died after a couole month for lack of thriving. The other gsl was taken by a raccoon 2 weeks ago. She was our friendliest bird. So we have Peep, our slw and 2 Welsummers (coco and cute chicken) left. Peep loves to jump over our tall fences into the neighbors yards! She was our 2nd most friendliest bird, now our first since Goldie our gsl was killed. Peep follows us around the yard and she doesn't mind being pet. Not overly fond of being held but she tolerates it from me. She doesn't let my kids hold her. She is a good layer, one egg every 1 to 2 days. They are light brown in coloring. I'm very happy we have her. We got 4 new chicks this spring, one of them being a goldenlaced wyandotte. I'm excited to have more of this breed. They are very beautiful birds! Our wyandotte seems to be more people friendly than our welsummers. The cats even get along with the birds

fertile eggs? - George,

does anybody have fertile eggs of silver and (or) gold wyandottes for sale?

Great show birds - Ifan,

I have a mix of 6 wyandottes silver and buff laced and have won in 3 shows this year. They look great and are easy to handle, the only problem as far as I am concerned is the egg production. They are great breed and I would recommend them to everyone.

Beautiful, shy and SLOW to start laying - Gill,

I got 3 silver laced in September, and despite being fabulously big and good looking, have not started to lay.... Breeder wasn't quite sure hatch date, so maybe very slow developers or it started getting dark early, which has pushed forward laying till next spring. Anyway, they are bottom of pecking order (have Rhodie, cream legbar and 2 light sussex) but they have integrated and settled in well. A bit daft. Make sweet low sound, and are delightful to watch. Like to fly! Even though they are bigger and fatter than the others.
