Ixworths were standardised in 1939 after being created in 1932 by Reginald Appleyard, originator of the famous Silver Appleyard breed of heavy duck. The chicken was named after the village of Ixworth in Suffolk where Reginald Appleyard was based. White Orpington, White Sussex, White Minorca and Indian Game were used to create this white skinned table bird.  I have found the hens to be good layers of cream coloured eggs.
