The true origin of the Wyandotte is unknown, however, Dark Brahmas and Spangled Hamburgs were probably used in the development of the original Silver Laced variety. Columbian Wyandottes were developed from a cross of White Wyandottes and Barred Plymouth Rocks. Columbian Wyandotte chicks have gray backs with light yellow heads, wing tips and chests. They have rose combs and clean, yellow legs and feet. Adult males and females have a similar plumage that is primarily white with black markings. The wing primaries are black or black edges while the secondaries have a black inner web and white outer web. The tail is green black except the top two feathers that may be laced with white, and the coverts may or may not be laced with white.
