 The exact origin of the breed is unknown, but after the American Civil War, ancestors of today's Wyandottes were found all over the North and Northeast portions of the United States. It was called many different names but was loved for its calm nature, egg-laying abilities, and quality as a meat bird. Wyandottes are especially appropriate for areas with cold winters because they tolerate cold well, and their rose combs are not likely to freeze.

Eventually, in 1883, the breed was accepted into the American Poultry Association's Standard of Perfection with one name: the Silver Laced Wyandotte. The name came from enthusiast Fred Houdlette, who suggested it to honor his father's boat, which was in turn named to honor the Native American Wyandot people. So, a uniquely American breed of chicken was named for a group of Native Americans.

 The White Wyandotte is snow-white from the tip of each feather, right down to the fluff near the skin. There is no brassy-yellow look, nor any creaminess. The skin and legs are yellow, the rose comb and wattle are bright red.
