The basics:
The Wybar Chicken was created by breeder Mr. Foden of Hadleigh, Essex. Around 1950, Mr. Foden crossed Barred Plymouth Rocks, Silver Laced Wyandottes, and other breeds. His intention was to create an useful autosexing breed that could be used for eggs, meat, and exhibition. The Wybar became standardized in 1956, by the Poultry Club of Great Britain.
