Penedesenca
These beautiful Spanish breed birds lay very dark brown eggs, and are so unique that they'll be the talk of your flock. Colored eggs are always a more brilliant color early every laying season, and slowly fade as the season progresses. They have unusual combs, called "carnation" combs, or "kings' combs." These start as a regular single comb at the front, and then split into several lobes at the rear like a crown. These birds are very active, and like most Mediterranean breeds, won't be suited to the coldest weather due to their large combs and smaller body size. However, they do wonderfully in heat. And have we mentioned the dark brown eggs? Oh, the eggs!
