About Mugellese ChickensAbout Mugellese Chickens

Mugellese, also known as Mugginese, are a rustic dual-purpose bantam from Tuscany, in central Italy. They get their name from the Mugello, an area to the north-east of Florence. They were common until the 1950's, but became rare in the second half of the 20th century. They are now in a phase of recovery, selection, and improvement.  

Mugellese hens are broody. The capons are used to raise the chicks immediately after the birth. They are a very lively chicken, very active, even if mild.

They are dark golden (partridge) and hens may also be wheaten buff. Their skin is white and their legs are pale or flesh-colored. They have a single comb is with 4-6 points. Their ear-lobes range from red to white. Their average weight is 0.8 kg (1.8 lb) for roosters, 0.7 kg (1.5 lb) for hens. Their eggs are small and ivory-white.
