    Hi, I have a Black Minorca/Deleware hen. She has gold tipped feathers on her neck. I was wondering what the official coloring is called. I know that the pattern is not mottled, but very uniform, and each colored feather has gold on the outer edge of an otherwise black feather. She is my best layer, and I have some of her eggs crossed wth my White Leghorn rooster. Any ideas what chicks might look like?[​IMG]
