    Hmmmm....tough call, but I've always been a fan of pure black chickens. I just love the way the iridescent green shine catches the sun! The same goes with the Black East Indies and Archangel pigeons. I seem to be a sucker for iridescent feathers [​IMG]

    My second very close pick would be Spangled Old English Game.

    Here is my favorite rosecomb hens. (I'll try to get some pics of the OEG later)

    Wheaten Marans are my fav. I don't have any as the feather legged ones are so hard to find [​IMG]

    My faves are anything tipped with black, like Lakenvelders, light brahmas, Columbian Cochins, or BTW Japanese bantams. My other computer is down so I can't get pictures up just yet, but suffice to say all of these breeds are white with black heads/necks and tails . . . well, the BTW Japanese only have a black tail, but you get the idea.

    i like the columbian color....which would also explain why i like the delawares...the laced colors (only if theyre NICE) are beautiful...i dont like the ones that are all mixed together though...it needs to be a distinictive color pattern though...
