Three hundred years ago, this breed of chicken was known to be one of the genetically pure strains of poultry left in the whole world. Many who built their own chicken coop in the home backyard would know how rare this chicken is in the chicken world.
This breed can be described as having little circular wattles and red lobes. The eggs they lay are medium-sized and creamy. Moreover, they lay them at a rate of one egg for every 48 hours. They can simply live in both pastures and barns.
This breed of chicken is very rare. Even in its country of origin, Hungary, this type of chicken is still difficult to locate. In reality, the number of breeders can still be counted using one hand. Because of the wars in Hungary and their cross-breeding practices with other birds for business, these birds became nearly extinct. You may see some noticeable traits of our Hungarian Yellows in the New Hampshire breeds of poultry.
We still need your help to re-grow herds all over Canada.
