Wyandottes are popular for their dependable egg-laying, hardiness and variety of color patterns. Originating in the United States and named for the indigenous Wyandot people of North America, the Wyandotte breed is noted for being friendly, and combined with their easy maintainability, is a favorite with those new to raising chickens. It is a popular show bird, and has many color variants, including Golden Laced.
Louis A. Stahmer (1875-1938) was a nationally known poultry breeder, judge and artist. For his paintings, he used the first prize winners at poultry shows in New York, Boston and Chicago as models, conforming to the new 1923 Standard of Perfection.
The WATT Global Media collection of poultry breed paintings (1926-1950) is the largest single collection of rare poultry breed portraits worldwide. The complete collection is comprised of 57 framed oil paintings of different poultry breeds created by three American artists, A.O. Schilling, L. Stahmer and F.L. Sewell, and was commissioned by J.W. Watt, founder of Watt Publishing Company in the mid-1920s.
