I am looking for show quality leghorns preferably black and anconas.
I don't think I've ever seen a black leghorn... would love to see some pics of some...
I had an ancona once... she was too flighty for me.
Quote:I take it you are looking for Bantam Black Leghorns but are you looking for Rose Comb or Single Comb...
You can see pictures of the european type on theleghornclub.com or on fertilehatchingeggsl.com but there are not a lot of good pictures of the american type anywhere on the internet.
I would like to get standard size single comb
Finally a person wholikes Anconas. My personal Ancona flock is a roo and five hens.
Quote:Black isn't a recognised color for Large Fowl Leghorn in the U.S. ...
Ancona's are tho,and they were called Italian black leghorns previously.
There are single comb black leghorns in the apa show book
Yes Black Leghorns have been a standard variety for many ,many decades.The only problem I have is that the standard Black pair does not breed true and neither does the Silver Duckwing standard pair. The "yellow legged" female is the pullet bred or female line with a black mate needing light almost white under color (and is prone to white sickles.).The Silver Duckwing standard female is also a female line and does not breed standard colored silver males,these too must be double mated.
