Place of Origin: United States.

Conservation Status: Not applicable.

Special Qualities: Lays blue eggs in various shades. Has an impressively long laying season.

Hen

American Game Bantam

This breed was developed during the 1940s by crossing a common pit game bantam (a small fighting bird) with Red Jungle Fowl (small birds that are fast runners). American Games are hardy, vigorous, and easy for beginners to raise.

Notable Features: Small, thin, smooth wattles and ear- lobes, bright red in most varieties. Many color varieties.

Originating along the coast of Italy, in the town of the same name, Anconas are closely related to the Leghorns. In fact, when they arrived in North America some people referred to them as Mottled Leghorns or Black Leghorns.

Rooster

Size: Standard Cock. 6 lb. (2.75 kg) / Hen. 4.5 lb. (2 kg). Bantam Cock. 26 oz. (740 g) / Hen. 22 oz. (625 g).

    A nice overview of poultry breeds. Included breeds not recognized by the APA or ABA, which is a helpful aid (as more information is available about the recognized breeds). The photographs are good. In my opinion for the breeds with which I'm most familiar the photographs are of "typical" rather than "ideal" examples. Still this is an excellent companion to other poultry books and one I highly recommend.
