Sicilian Buttercup Chicks

Sicilian Buttercup Chickens were discovered on the island of Sicily in the early 19th century and imported to the United States in 1835. They are named for their unique buttercup comb that resembles a cup or crown. The comb is said to have developed from two side by side single combs that eventually merged at the front and rear. 

In most species of chicken the females tend to be dull and drab compared to the males, the Buttercup may be the exception to the rule. These birds mature early but the full comb takes longer. Sicilian Buttercups are not winter hardy and do not like confinement. You can expect around 3-4 white eggs per week.

Average mature weight: Roosters 6 1/2 lbs., Hens 5 lbs.
