From the Mediterranean Island of Minorca we get this beautiful red faced Minorca chicken. They have large floppy combs and black shiny feathers. Though there are some recognized Minorca breeds with Rose combs. These birds are good layers and a great show bird. They have white earlobes that stand out against the black feathers. They are typically flighty and noisy. This four toed chicken is not cold hardy and a bit of a quirky personality.
