In 1886 the late A. C. Major, of Langley, the renowned Dorking breeder, exhibited some Mottled Leghorns. They were like the Browns in general body colour, and were covered with small splashes of white, but they never made any headway, and were soon lost to view.

On the Continent Black Mottles have been bred for many years. They are black splashed with white. The marking is quite different from that of the Ancona, even as the birds themselves are quite different from the Ancona in general characteristics of shape and style in Holland and Germany, both, Black Mottles are frequently to be met and they are very attractive birds.
