Reindeer Cuckoo Hen

Physical peculiarities
The Coucou de Rennes has a strong neck and a relatively thin head. Its eggs are a minimum size of 60 g, cream-colored, tending to red.

Plumage: bluish grey, a so-called cuckoo plumage for this color variation (black feathers speckled with white) reminiscent of the gray cuckoo. The rooster is lighter than the hen. Their feathers are silky and abundant, tight, glued to the body.
Eyes: orange-red.
Beak: relatively thin and short. It is light beige, similar to a horn.
Crest: simple, red.
Chest: broad and well developed.
Mumps: red.
Tarsi: they are clear and relatively thick, of medium length. Pinkish white, sometimes dotted with gray-brown.
Behavior and character
Easygoing, the Coucou de Rennes quickly feels at home. It is a very docile hen that coexists easily with all farmyard animals.

A lover of wide-open spaces, this Breton chick can quickly become restless, even quarrelsome, if she finds herself cramped. She is, therefore, a hen to be favored if you have enough space for her to feel free to move.
