Partridge Penedesenca Chicks

Penedesenca Chickens are an extremely rare Spanish breed and almost went extinct until efforts were made in the 1980s to save it. The Penedesenca lays one of the darkest eggs of any chicken variety and is very hard to find in the United States. The Penedesenca egg is a dark chocolate reddish brown, often referred to as terracotta. You can expect 3-4 eggs per week from the hens. They are active and make excellent foragers.

Partridge Penedesenca hens are golden brown with a fine double laced/penciled feathering. The males resemble the colorful feathering of a Brown Leghorn. Penedesencas are an exception to the rule in regards to lobe color. They have white lobes, yet lay brown eggs. Penedesenca Chickens have clean legs.   

Average matures weight: roosters 5 1/2 lbs., hens 4 1/2 lbs.
