    The Black Minorca has a long history and has been black for centuries (at least). It looks like the White Minorca was developed through a white sport. The Buff Minorca, though, was it developed from the Black Minorca or were other breeds used to get the buff coloration, as in the way the Buff Chantecler is being developed?
