Mottled Houdans are unusual, beautiful birds that are also quite useful.

Most people who raise Houdans do so for their characters and ornamental qualities. Years ago Houdans were also great meat birds however since then they are now much too small.  As the name implies, Mottled Houdans are mottled with black and white feathers all over.

Mottled Houdans originated in France, around Normandy. While no one is certain which breeds went into their development, the fact they have crests, beards, muffs, and a fifth toe offers some clues.

They were quite common at one time but never gained huge popularity in England or the United States. In France, they are well known for the quality of their meat but are almost always raised as pets or ornamentals in the US.
