Columbian or Light
The columbian is a colour which we seldom see in the Netherlands. However, it still manages to show up occasionally at exhibitions.
The columbian or light comes in two varieties, both with and without saddle pattern. The columbian Leghorn is required to have no saddle pattern (see picture).
These specimens are virtually white. The neck hackle is black with white lacing, the wings are also black with white lacing on the outer web, the tail is black too with glossy green greater sickles while the hen’s lesser sickles and tail coverts are white-laced black. The down goes from white to light blueish grey.
