The speckled is a colour which recently managed to attract the attention of some bantam Leghorn breeders. This colour was previously called ‘red speckled’, but the actual birds were rather of the classic speckled shade rather than the red one. This is the reason why the colour’s denomination was changed. This colour can be generally described as intense ochre, with a white pearl over a black spangle on each feather. The cock’s tail is black with a white pearl on as many feathers as possible.
