    What does it mean when it says the beak color should be something like yellowish horn, the word horn is what I don't get about it. Also on the chicken calculator it says for some colors of the birds it should be birchen crowwing, what does it mean when it says crowwing.

    Could you don't mean Reddish Horn?

    Horn:
    As in Reddish Horn would be a very dark red color.


    Crow-wing:

    Is a, "family" of, "colors"/verities.
    To have coloring in the wing bow while the wing bar and wing bay is a black or white color like seen in brown reds, unlike Duck-wings which possess coloring in both the wing bow and bay.

    Quote:No expert here, but when I hear yellowish horn I would say a soft yellow/brownish and can have dark brown/black lines.
    This is a very poor example but my bantam Cochin Rooster has what would be considered yellowish horn in color.

    This is what I assume! (and you know what assume is...)
