The Chantecler is Canada's first original breed of chicken. The White Chantecler was the inspiration of Brother Wilfred Chatelain of the Cistercian Abbey in Oka, Quebec. He decided to create a breed that was supremely Canadian, that would do well in the harsh Canadian winters, and that could be a solid and dependable egg producer and meat bird. 

Chatelain started his breeding program in 1908, breeding a combination of Dark Cornish, White Leghorns, Rhode Island Reds, White Wyandottes, and White Plymouth Rocks, which ultimately led to the White Chantecler as we know it. The Chantecler was named after the French words, 'chanter' and 'clair' which translate 'to sing bright.' The White Chantecler was admitted into the APA Standard of Perfection in 1921.
