These chickens are a graceful landrace who are very good foragers. They fly well and lay lots of large light cream to white eggs. They are found in 3 colors, gold, lemon and silver. Their disposition is calm, but not friendly. They are hardy and disease resistant even as chicks. They are very rare in their native countries with reports less than 1000 now exist.

    Coloring is very similar to Sicilian Buttercup, near identical. The 3rd last picture looks exactly like our rooster, except the obvious difference with the comb shape.
