The White-Faced Black Spanish breed has the distinctive characteristic of a large smooth white face and ear lobes. It is closely related to both the Castilian and Minorca breeds. It is a very old breed. The white face has been enhanced by many breeders over the years to the extent that no one really knows what, if any, economic value this fowl once had. The hens are non-broody and lay a large pure white egg. It was admitted to the standard in 1874.
