A handsome black and white Mediterranean breed of chicken, that can be sexed according size of head gear by 10 weeks or even earlier. Female comb and wattles eventually grow very large (relative to those of other breeds) but grow more slowly than in males, with the result that comb sizes between males and females differ very noticeably by 10 weeks. When older, female comb and wattles do not reach the same size that males do, and because female combs are thinner they tend to flop over onto one side like a cap.
