    I have a Ancona rooster, and 2 white leghorn hens and 2 california white leghon hens, and was wanting to know what would they look like? Would they lay more too?

    I invited her in for dinner and she is kind wondering what I'm cooking [​IMG]

    What size egg does she lay? Large (Over 2 ounces).

    Quote:My goodness Nava! Not spangled, reverse mottling! [​IMG] Isn't she on the first page of the Ancona thread?

    She's so pretty I'm thinking about crossing a few just to run around the yard for the contrast with the regular Anconas. Is this an Ancona Cock over a Leghorn hen? What color hen? I have a few Leghorns and Leghorn/Game crosses her, but the dominant white pretty much knocks the color out of everything. Maybe I'll pen up one of those hens with "Liberace"; a RC cock who's tail set and markings are so bad I won't use him for breeding, but he's so flamboyant and lively, I keep him around anyway. He really has a flair for the dramatic.

    Just a quick question.,...What color are her legs? Are they a pale yellow or white. If she is an Ancona X Leghorn...her legs would be yellow....pale yellow if she is laying heavy. They look white to me....just curious...[​IMG] Yellow to yellow produces yellow and yellow to white produces white carrying yellow. She is a VERY attractive hen....I like her feather pattern.
