This chicken was named after it was exhibited at the 1893 Columbian Exposition or World’s Fair held in Chicago. This variety was admitted as an American Standard breed in the American Standard of Perfection in 1905. Columbian Wyandotte chickens are a docile bird, clean legs, white with black feather around the neck, tail and wings. They have a rose comb and occasionally will go broody and they make excellent mothers. They do well in confinement or free range areas. Cackle Hatchery® only offers at this time our production type/line not a show type.
Many people who like this breed of chicken also like the miniature version of the breed, the Columbian Wyandotte Bantam Chicken.
