Scots Grey medium sized toby jug produced by Quail Ceramics of the Midlands, England, circa 2020. The Scots Grey is a dual-purpose breed of domestic chicken originating in Scotland, where it has been bred for more than two hundred years. The Scots Grey is a tall, upright chicken. The Scots Grey has a single comb. The face, wattles, earlobes and comb are bright red, and the beak and shanks are white, sometimes marked with black. The plumage is barred. The ground color is steel-grey, and the barring is black with a metallic sheen. Although both sexes are closely similar, the markings are larger in hens than in cocks, and may give a tartan appearance.
