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. Silver Laced Wyandottes are black with white streaks down the back. The chest and abdomen may be either gray or white, and the wing tips are white. They have a rose comb with yellow and gray, clean legs and feet. Adult males have a white head with each feather having a black stripe. The neck is greenish black with narrow white lacing, the back is white, and the tail is black. The breast feathers are white with greenish black lacing. Adult females have the same white feathers with greenish black lacing on their body, back, breast and lower thighs. The female head is white, and the tail is black.
