The Pyncheon is a rare American breed of true bantam chicken. It is an old breed, developed in the Northeastern USA. The Pyncheon's ancestors are thought to have been brought there from the Netherlands or from Belgium. The breed has a single comb followed by a tassel behind the comb. Often, the comb is not straight due to the crest and veers into an 's' shape. A unique variation of Mille fleur is the pattern in which they most commonly appear, but breeders have developed a porcelain variety as well. As with most bantams, they are strong flyers. The hens are fair layer of small white eggs. They have a friendly disposition, and a high tendency towards broodiness. It is recognized by the American Bantam Association.
