The Scottish Ancona Club
One of the Mediterranean light weight, white egg breeds, this hardy bird takes its name form the city of Ancona in Italy. It can be found in both single and rose combed forms. Its plumage is black, with some of the feathers being tipped with white. Shanks and feet are yellow in the US standard, but the British call for a line of black mottling down the front of the shank, as can be seen in the above illustration.
