The ideal plumage pattern in which each feather is a rich dark red narrowly laced
with white is very difficult to achieve but tremendously impressive in those individuals which are marked that way. Even though
others may not quite realize this perfection they are handsome birds in their red and white plumage and deep yellow skin color,
and display to a high degree the square, blocky type of true Cornish. They mature rather slowly. Hens are fair layers of brown
eggs which have firm, strong shells. Chicks are rather small and of varying shades of reddish buff.
