Colloncas means tailless, and two of the chicks hatched this year do not have tails. I've named them. This is Ebony.
She has an attractive z-shaped comb. I'm sure this would disqualify her for showing, if this landrace were recognized by any breed organization or had an standardization. But since it doesn't, I'm happy to think of it as distinctive.

She also has a few feathers for a crest. She's so dark, she has an almost prehistoric appearance. When she sits on my arm and squawks, I fell like I'm holding a baby dinosaur.
