About Romagnola ChickensAbout Romagnola Chickens

The breed was common in Romagna and part of Emilia (Ravenna, Forli and Bologna). Fine boned. The comb is single, of medium size, erect in the cock and folded in the hen, red, smooth. The wattles are well developed. The earlobes are oval shaped, small, cream-coloured, sometimes with blue shades, especially in young animals. The shanks can be pure yellow, yellow but spotted with dark, greenish or totally dark, which is the favourite colour. The liveries can be various, as shown by historical pictures, but probably the most common types were: silver, silver buttercup, golden buttercup, white, brown down.
The skin is various as well, but it’s frequently white.

This breed went under selection by Experimental Poultry Station in Rovigo and by the Agricoltural Inspectorate of Ravenna County, which obtained homogeneous stocks of silver buttercup, golden buttercup, silver pencilled, golden pencilled.

A small stock is reared in collaboration with the University of Parma, at Veterinary Faculty. The breed is included in a protection project supported by the Parma Province and by Animal Production Department of the Faculty of Veterinary.
