Breed Details:
In my experience Chanteclers are a great bird. They lay a medium sized egg that is a light brown to pinkish in colour. They are good layers, they give an egg almost every day, and only take a break once in a while. They are great birds for places with cold weather, because their combs and wattles are small enough that they don't get frostbite. They're also nice and plump and have firm feathering to keep the cold breezes out. They probably would not do well in places with high temperatures at a constant rate. They will go broody (some birds more than others) and they are great mothers that can cover a large amount of eggs. I would highly recommend Chanteclers to anyone.
