As we so many breeds, Anconas are named for the city of their origin. These birds were originally bred in northern Italy and were first imported to Britain in the mid-1800s, and then to the United States shortly thereafter.

There are many similarities between Leghorns and Anconas, and some breeders referred to Anconas as “Mottled Leghorns” at first. The two breeds are distinct, however, with the main difference being in the shape of their bodies. Anconas have a slightly angled appearance on their backs and Leghorns do not. 

Anconas are predominantly black, with white mottling. An ideal representation of the breed would have one white feather for every five black feathers. As they age, the white mottling increases. They have clean, yellow legs and yellow skin.
