Houdans are a froofy French breed, just like their cousins the Crevecoeurs. They're also related to the Polish breed of chicken. Just like Polish and Crevecoeurs, Houdans are crested with fluffy 'dos and have a V-shaped comb. Houdans are unique, however, in having 5 toes and a beard.
White egg layers, Houdans are considered very docile and amenable to confinement—since they can't see super well, after all! They're also efficient in terms of food eaten to egg ratio. They're rarely kept, so yours is bound to be the talk of the town.
