About Catalana ChickensAbout Catalana Chickens

Catalanas are a dual-purpose chicken that are both good asrnegg layers and meat animals. They lay four eggs a week in white, cream, or pinkrncolors. The standard size Catalana makes a good meat production fowl. Catalanasrnhandle extreme heat well- a fact which accounts for their popularity in Spainrnand Latin America. They like to forage, brood just a little, and generallyrnexercise their independence. Many breeders value Catalanas, especially thernbantam size, as ornamentals more than egg or meat producers. They are lively,rnactive, flighty, seldom friendly; and do best under free-range conditions.

rnrnCatalanas usually display a basic light buff plumage withrnreddish buff hackles. All varieties have a greenish-black tail. They stand onrnnaked legs which are gray or green in color. On their heads, Catalanas sport arnsingle red comb, large red wattles, and large white earlobes. They have a hornrncolored beak and dark red eyes. As in many breeds the five points on the male'srncomb stand erect in contrast to a hen's comb with one erect point followed byrnfour floppy points.

rnrnCatalanas need warmth year-round. Consider carefully yourrnlatitude prior to purchasing this breed. As a warm-climate fowl, Catalanas livernas a true free-range chicken. They like to roam and will need protection fromrnpredators. Feed good layer food rich in calcium and protein to support theirrnegg laying. Keep up with hen culling to get the most from their dual purposernstatus.
