Wyandotte’s origins date back to the 19th century, when the silver-edged black variety emerged in New York state by crossing samples of silver Sebright, white Cochin, Hamburg, and Brahma.
Silver Hamburg was added with black Cochin light brown to achieve gold-edged black, the second color for official recognition by the American Poultry Association’s Standard of Excellence (1883).
In 1905, 8 color variants were already known; The most popular of these was the uniformity obtained in white and variety for good egg production.
The Wyandotte is one of the most popular breeds, especially in the bantam variety, thanks to its versatility, adaptability and practicality that set it apart.
Wyandotte has particularly rounded shapes, with the chest forward and the neck slightly moved back. The rather short and wide back and the richness of feathers also contribute to the impression of full, harmonious roundness.
