What is shown is all that was in the article. So I guess no photos of cockerels. Here are some images I pulled up a some time last year when I was looking at the differences between the APA and English Leghorn. David Scrivener was one of the contacts that the Cream Legbar Working Group got in touch with in 2012 to help with the Cream Legbar History. He was a licensed Poultry Judge in the UK and about the most well versed person alive on Poultry History. He really urged the Cream Legbar club to look at the difference between the English and the APA Leghorn and make sure we were writing the Legbar Standard with the English Leghorn in mind. When I learned that he passed away last year I started to following through on what he had said. Here are the Images.
First the English Leghorn. It is a breed of angles. It has a straight lined downward sloping back, a keel that follows the line of the back, and the hens have tails that come to a point. They also have have huge combs The cockerels have erect combs and the hens have the first point erect and the rest of the comb falling to either side.
Here is the APA Leghorn. It is a breed of curves. The straight lined downward sloping back is replaced by a curved back. The brest is well curved. The hens have a fanned tail. They tend to have a lot smaller combs that have the blade horizontal with the horizon rather than curving to follow the line of the neck like the English Leghorn. The weight standards are also about a pound lighter for the APA Leghorn than the English Leghorn.
The "angles" shown in the illustration for the English Leghorn, look more like my experience with the CL than the photo of the English Leghorn does.
I have a new batch of cockerels that matches the back and tail of the English Leghorn really well, but tend to be a little fuller in the chest as depicted in the American Leghorn.
I have hens with both types of tails, but I haven't really had a cockerel or hen with the swooping back of the American Leghorns as depicted in the illustration.
Maybe the English Leghorn hen was just standing at an odd angle in the photo? She also appeared to have fuller under fluff than what has been recommended?
