Birds: Domestic Fowl
mother hen and chick
Sebright Hen - Oldest recorded British 'true' bantam.
*WATCH* Ancona chickens have a distinct plumage color pattern – black ground color mottled white. Very hardy, fertile and prolific. They can be a bit wild in their habits – easily flying to avoid potential dangers and ranging over a great area when foraging. They stand frost and snow quite well and will surpass Leghorn chickens as winter layers. The chicks hatch a canary and black in down color, feather and grow quickly, and pullets will often begin laying at five months of age.
