These beautiful birds were developed in the US. They come in many colors, but the Silver and Golden varieties are the most available. They have either a white or gold lacing pattern between the black on their feathers. The rose-style comb is perfect for cold regions as it is less prone to frostbite. They are a smaller breed. Though they can be domineering and are typically the head hens in their flocks, they make excellent mothers and lay lovely pale brown eggs four or five times per week.
