    Wyandotte breed are the chickens that look old in the face. This is because of their eyes planted deep with reddish flesh in the middle of dark-colored feathers in the head. They have clean legs and their feathers are loosely placed. Their colors vary from golden laced, white, partridge, to silver-laced among others.

    This breed produces chickens that are regularly creating soft clucks. This means that they tend to get noisy at times. But humans need not be annoyed with them because their remarkably very friendly. Breeders say that beginners can start taking care of this breed because of its friendly characteristic and the fact that it doesn't require high maintenance.

    Egg-laying is not much of a deficit to this breed. Hens of this breed lay eggs for up to 240 every year with a regular number of 200 per year. They lay brown eggs. Breeders love them not only for their eggs but also for their meat.
