The first Canadian breed originating in Quebec in 1918. They are a dual purpose fowl - yellow skin, brown eggs, unique cushion shaped comb that makes them easily adapted to cold climates. These are very popular and book up fast. Chanteclers have always been one of my favorite breeds. They are a relaxed breed,not flighty, just relaxed and easy to deal with. Not the fastest growing birds in the world but consistent growers and layers. There is a lot of misinformation perpetuated on the internet about them being great winter layers. What they are is very winter hardy but they will only lay in the winter with supplemental light.
