    To me they look like New Hampshire Reds. I am raising my 9 sasso chickens at home in Baguio City, Philippines :)

    I used to raise sasso before. It's a french chicken. Grows as big as kabir but taste like a native chicken.

    Greetings All,

    SASSO isn't a breed. It is a French company based in Les Landes in SW France (not far from me) that sells a range of chicken types. They're all hybrids, i.e. not for repro. The chicken market here is dominated by label rouge so that is what they specialize in, but they do other things too. These are chickens that go outside rather than for industrial farms.

    You can see their range here: http://www.sasso.fr/best-chicken-breeds-male-breeders-for-organic-free-range-backyard-production.html
