Chantecler chickensrnwere developed in Canada. They can handle cold well; but have little tolerancernto heat. They have a tight feathered plumage with a thick under layer of down. rnrn

rnrnThey are arndual-purpose chicken. They lay four to seven medium, brown eggs a week and arernlarge enough to be suitable for good meat production. They mature quickly andrnlay consistently far into the cold months producing as many as 210 eggs a year.rnrnrnrn

rnrnChanteclersrnreflect their environment. Hardy, rugged, and ready to face the cold, theyrnprefer the outdoors to confinement. A little high strung, they will toleraternthe coop but will grow temperamental when confined for long periods of time.rnOwners rate Chanteclers as non-aggressive toward humans. If handled early, theyrnprove amenable to training. The hens have broody tendencies. However, once therneggs hatch, they make good mothers. rnrn

rnrnChantecler chickensrnwere developed originally with white plumage but they can be found in buff andrnpartridge. They sport a small cushion comb and diminutive wattles purposefullyrnintroduced to the breed to avoid frostbite. A tall and meaty fowl with abundantrnplumage, the average Chantecler weighs seven or eight pounds.rnrn

rnrnOnlyrnchoose Chanteclers if you live in a cold climate with long winters. Feed themrnad libidum with a high quality layer food that supplements the calcium andrnprotein lost in their prodigious egg production. Give your Chanteclers plentyrnof room to roam and forage. Build a large coop with adequate space for thernoccasional times of confinement. Keep confinement times to a minimum. Breed andrncull the rare Chanteclers carefully with the goal of increasing the breed'srnquality and numbers.
