The Barred Wyandotte

The Standard for Barred Wyandottes


Male and female plumage: equal width black with a beetle green sheen and white bars, clear cut and horizontal, carried to the skin and finished with a black tip. It is important that there is a sharpness in the barring and that there should be an overall flow making a distinct pattern over the body.

Undercolour: barred to the skin with as many bars as possible.
Any black or white feathers in wings or body is a disqualification

Colour defects: Irregular and broken barring, V- shaped barring with the exception of the neck and saddle hackles of the male due to the natural shape of the barbs. Brassiness in any part of the plumage.
