Description

The Silver Laced Wyandotte is the original variety of the Wyandotte breed and is the most popular variety of the breed.  It originated in the state of New York where they were first known as “American Sebrights” and “Sebright Cochins”.  In 1883 they were admitted to the Standard of Perfection in the American Class under the name of Silver Laced Wyandottes.  The true origin is unknown; however, Dark Brahmas and Spangled Hamburgs were probably used in the development of this variety.  They are a hardy, active, medium weight, dual-purpose fowl used for production of both eggs and meat, but primarily for eggs.

The close fitting, sharply marked, silver laced plumage is one of the most beautiful color patterns ever developed.  The male and female have a completely different plumage appearance.  The head of the male is silvery white with each feather having a black stripe.  The web of the male’s neck feathers is lustrous, greenish black with a narrow lacing of silvery white.  The male’s back is silvery white in appearance and the tail is black.  The web of each breast feather of the male is white with a narrow, sharply defined lacing of lustrous, greenish black.  The web of each feather of the body, back, breast and lower thighs of the female is the same as the male’s breast feathers.  The plumage of the female’s head is silvery gray and the tail is black. The backs of both males and females are medium in length, broad the entire length and rise with a concave sweep to the tail.  The rose combs of Wyandottes are low and firm on the head, have an oval surface covered with small rounded points, and taper to a well-defined point that curves to conform to the shape of the skull.  They have yellow shanks and feet.

The chicks are black with white streaks down the back.  The chest and abdomen may be either white or gray, and the wing tips are white.  They have rose combs and clean legs and feet that are yellow with some black or gray.

The general appearance of Wyandottes is a short, deep, wide-bodied bird.  The unusual, striking color pattern and docile nature are the characteristics that make this variety popular.
