About Sicilian Buttercup ChickensAbout Sicilian Buttercup Chickens

Sicilian Buttercup, or just Sicilian, chickens are a very ancient Italian breed. They are very common in Sicily. It’s probably the result of the ancient crossbreeding between Sicilian chickens and chickens coming from North Africa. Nowadays the Siciliana is in the process of recovery.

Good precocity. The cock starts to show sexual instinct at 40 days, the hen starts laying at 5 months. The eggs have white shell.

Fine-boned, with well developed muscles (thighs and breast), round and well shaped: this breed is a good producer of meat in spite of the small size (tasty meat).

Good layer, with good rusticity but not suitable in cold regions.

The Siciliana has a stray nature, but it doesn’t fly a lot. If reared free on wide superficies, it’s able to find a big part of daily diet. The eggs are white with a typical oblong shape. Minimum weight of 45g, the shell can be from white to cream. Proud aspect, strong and rustic, rarely susceptible to common diseases of chickens.
