    It is a mixed color.
    You could see "tooped" or halfmoon spangling on brabanters and owlbeard and such breeds.

    Quote:And dosent it also have something to do with the incomplete lacing that you can get with crossing with laced breeds ? Like a lot of times on hatchery Wyandottes, their lacing looks more like spangles than lacing.

    IT would help if you put it in a sentence. I think. It could mean that the bird is split for spangling, meaning one parent was. A bird with one spangled parent and one NOT spangled parent. But if that is what is meant, it should say Split for spangling.

    Also a lot of "hatchery" type Spangled Hamburgs are Half-Spangled.
    Either they don't have the spangling they need or they have way too much.....
    One Example -
    Each feathers on the breast of a Spangled Hamburg should end with a spangle.
    A lot of hatchery Spangled Hamburg lack in spangling or have way to much Black in them and look more like a "Black Breasted" Spangled Hamburg than a Spangled Hamburg. Either way I believe that would make them a Half-Spangled.
