The hen of Houdan

Key element of our territory, the hen of Houdan is a true celebrity and recognizable by far thanks to its black plumage flecked with white or its majestic hoopoe. Another specificity: this chicken breed has five fingers!

It is one of the oldest French breeds but the climax of its production took place at the end of the XIXth - beginning of the XXth century.

It is also known for its particularly tasty flesh.
