Origin, diffusion and economic characteristics

Origin: Russia (Moscow)

The hens of this breed produce on average between 120 and 130 eggs per year and the weight of the latter is also extraordinary, reaching even 90 grams. Its breeding, among other things, aims to select chickens with the best vocal timbre: also called singing chicken, this breed includes tenor, baritone and bass chickens and can emit sounds of up to 25 seconds. Its meats are of high quality, also thanks to this form of breeding: the singing ability, in fact, particularly develops the lungs of the chicken and this determines a high oxygenation of the blood. The meat therefore has a low fat content (under the skin is practically absent) and is of an intense pink color. The selection of this breed has more than two centuries of history. It was bred in several regions of central and southern Russia: Orlov, Kursk, Tambov and Lipetsk. Excellent hatching attitude
