    The Redcap is noted for its wonderful colouring; the plumage of the hen being a rich, deep, nut brown, with body feathers ending in a half-moon spangle. The plumage of the cockerel varies from a deep chestnut red to a black-red, the neck and hackles being a dark orange, matching in colour when the head is turned to the tail.
