About Millefiori di Lonigo ChickensAbout Millefiori di Lonigo Chickens

Millefiori di Lonigo chickens were shown for the first time in 1934 at the Sixteenth Padua Trade Fair by the Itinerant Lonigo Centre for Agricultural Research.

Some Millefiori di Lonigo chickens have been found in a traditional farm in South-Veneto, Italy, and they have been studied for two years in order to understand their real nature. Afterwards, the ri-selection of an ancient breed started: the Millefiori di Lonigo.

The most common problems were: rose eggs, red-veined earlobes, erect comb in female.
Many years of disorderly crossbreeding have partly distort the breed, but hopefully the old progeny has not been completely lost.

Typical are the late feathering, similar to Valdarnese, and the rotation on their axis of some feathers of tail and wings, probably as disagreeable consequence of inbreeding.
