  • The Crevecoeur is an old French breed that was once highly prized for the quality of its meat. Today it is considered a dual-purpose bird laying a fair number of white eggs while producing a moderate amount of meat. The breed was first introduced to the United States in late 1860’s but has always been a rarity. Crevecoeurs have a large globular crest on the top of their head and a small V-shaped comb that is mostly hidden by crest feathers. They are also bearded with small, virtually non-existent wattles. At first glance they seem similar to the Polish breed. However, Crevecoeurs are heavier and with blockier bodies than Polish. Purpose: Dual- Purpose Production: 200 Large White Eggs/Year Temperament: Docile, Calm, Active Mature Weight: 6-8 Lbs. Hardiness: Cold and Heat Hardy Broodiness: Occassionally Comb Type: V-Comb
