Mottled Houdan Chicken Breed Information and Chicken Facts
*Heritage Breed

Mottled Houdan Chicken Breed Information:

The Mottled Houdan chicken breed was imported from the town Houdan (France) into England around the 1850's. The Mottled Houdan chicken was introduced to America in 1865 and later in 1874 and it was admitted into the American Standard of Perfection. This unique chicken breed has a fifth toe, is an old French breed, has a wide cavernous nostril, a large crested feather head and a white egg layer. They are extremely docile and gentle and make good pets. Not particularly a good free range chicken if you have predators because of their top knot that blocks some of their vision. They are known as the “French Hen” and make a great backyard chicken for pets and show. Watch for a Cackle Hatchery coupon for great chicken discounts and sales.
