White Chantecler Chicken

$8.00

The White Chantecler Chicken originated in the Quebec Province of Canada and is a dual purpose chicken.  The Chantecler was the first Canadian breed of chicken.  Under the supervision of Brother Chatelain, the monks of the Cistercian Abbey in Oka, Quebec, sought to create a fowl of vigorous and rustic temperament that could resist the climatic conditions of Canada.  The White Chantecler was introduced to the public in 1918 and admitted to the American Poultry Association Standard of Perfection in 1921.

This breed is noted for having nearly no wattles and a small cushion comb appearing much like a small round button sitting low on the head.  An excellent layer of brown eggs and a good winter layer.  This breed is noted for being calm, gentle and personable.

At 20 weeks the average live weight for males was 7 pounds 8 ounces, the largest male was exactly 9 pounds.
