Mottled Houdan Chicken

The Mottled Houdan chicken originated in France and gets its name from the city of Houdan, near Paris. The Houdan Chicken is similar in build and feather type to the Crevecoeur Chicken and the Polish Chicken, two birds probably used in its creation to achieve the desired crest. The Mottled Houdan was first exported to North America in 1865, and was first featured in the American Standard of Perfection in 1874

The crested Mottled Houdan Chicken differs from the Polish and Crevecoeur in that it is always bearded and has five toes, a trait probably developed from breeding with the Dorking chicken or other French Breeds. Mottled Houdan Chickens are Fluffy and Crested and also have a V-shaped comb like it's fellow crested relatives, though much smaller than the comb of the Crevecoeur.

Mottled Houdan Chickens are exceptionally docile and gentle creatures, making good pets. They are tolerant of confinement and they are fairly good layers of medium sized white eggs. Some use the Mottled Houdan Chicken for egg production and their meat, but most keep this bird for ornamental and exhibition purposes.

Reviewer: Mardi from TX United States  
These chicks were healthy and active when they arrived. Doing fantastic, can't wait until they start to show their adult features and develop their "hats". This is my first experience shopping with efowl and I will definitely be back for more!
