Italians breeds

Millefiori Piemontese
Italian breeds of chickens

Origin and main characteristics

The Millefiori Piemontese is currently extinct, however, according to local experts, it seems to have still existed in the beginning of the 1990’s although genetically altered by out-crossing. According to the available description, it seems to have been quite similar to the Ancona breed (exchequer), heavily built and with red earlobes but still quite similar to the typical homosomic Mediterranean chickens.

The surviving of few relict Millefiori Piemontese chicken can’t be excluded.
