The Wyandotte was developed in New York state in the 1870s and was named for the indigenous Wyandotte people of North America. These birds are known for their elegant laced patterned feathers and are also great egg layers. Wyandottes are one of the most strikingly beautiful chickens to grace a backyard flock. They are quiet, easy to manage, and are one of the most winter-hardy of all breeds.
