The gold-laced Wyandotte is a golden color with black around the edge of every feather and black tail. Joseph McKeen of Wisconsin was the originator of the Golden Laced Wyandotte. In 1880 he crossed Silver Laced Wyandotte females with a large Black-Red patterned fowl of unknown origin called the Winnebago.
The variety was admitted to the American Standard in 1888. The Wyandottes are an American heritage breed in recovery status by the American Conservancy. Roosters weigh 7-8.5 pounds. The hens weigh 6-6.5 pounds. and lay up to 240 or more brown to light beige eggs annually. The Wyandotte is a breed that suits both free-range and confinement in a run. Hens occasionally become broody. They are also very vocal, uttering soft clucks on a regular basis. The breed as a whole has been noted for being incredibly friendly, and combined with their easy maintainability are a favorite for those new to raising chickens. The Wyandotte Breed as a whole, is a good choice for cold regions because of their Rose Comb that is not as subject to frostbite.
