Spanish Whiteface Chicken

Spanish Whiteface Chicken
Spanish White-face
Coming from Spain, this breed arrived in the US via the Caribbean Islands. Spanish are the oldest breed of chickens existent in the US today. At one time known as "The Fowls of Seville", they were very popular in the South during the Colonial period. The large area of snow white skin surrounding the face and wattles makes this breed unique. Actually this is an over developed earlobe.

Its color offers a marked contrast with the black plumage and the red comb and wattles.  They are considered non-broody and hold their feathers close to their body contours.  Spanish are active and noisy.  Many individuals are below recommended weight, and at this time, most of the population is highly inbred.  They are prized for large white eggs.
