This breed of chicken comes from Italy has a mottled Plumage color and is the size of a leghorn. The two black with white spots in the photo are Ancona All all of the chicken breeds I have had this is my least favorite. It is a very flighty breed of bird that would get over the tall fence. I had to search for them because they would want to roast outside of the coop at night. the coyotes finally got them. A beautiful bird it you do not mind the behavior and them flying in your face when you check the nest box. They are a excellent layer of medium size white eggs.
