Ancona Chickens

Ancona Chick

Ancona Hen

Ancona Rooster

Ancona chickens were developed in the mid 1800's near the city of Ancona, Italy and are black with white speckles. Ancona chickens tend to be hardy especially in the cold, but can occasionally suffer frostbite on their large combs. Ancona chickens lay a good amount of small white eggs, but are rather nervous and flighty, and tend to shy away from a lot of human contact. Anconas are great foragers. Anconas also have a bantam (miniature) counterpart.
