The Ancona large fowl ;

originated in the Italian province of Ancona and was bred from a mix of different breeds including Leghorn. The breed owes the name “black Leghorn” to its black plumage. These are sturdy, resilient, productive chickens that can be expected to have lots of white eggs. In Europe they have always enjoyed great popularity due to their laying performance. In 1888 they first came to England and a short time later to America.
