ⓘ Solid white (chicken plumage)

In poultry standards, solid white is coloration of plumage in chickens characterized by a uniform pure white color across all feathers, which is not generally associated with depigmentation in any other part of the body.

Color is an essential feature of living organisms. In the wild, color has great significance affecting the survival and reproductive success of the species. Environmental constraints, which lead to the specific colors of birds and animals is very strong and individuals of new colors, as a rule, do not survive. Under domestication, mankind has turned all the involved types, who thus were exempt from environmental stress to a large extent. Early color variants were mostly selected from considerations of utility or religious practices. In the last century, the color varieties were created solely for ornament and pleasure, fashion playing a surprisingly large role in their development. The variety of colors and patterns now found in domestic animals. In recent decades white plumage became necessary for the efficient processing of broilers and most types of meat-type poultry. Slaughterhouses and meat processing plants require poultry with a white or very light undercolor for the production of mascara without the characteristic "hair", which colored chickens that require singeing after plucking.

There are several chicken breeds having solid white as the most typical plumage, such as Leghorn, Dorking, Bresse Gauloise, Polish, Wyandotte and others. And there are many other best of breeds known for their colored species that also have a solid white variety, such as Plymouth rock, Orpington, Rhode island Red, Jersey giant and others.
