Chanteclers originated in Canada at the Oka Agricultural Institute in the early 1900's using Rhode Island Reds, White Wyandotte’s, Dark Cornish, White Leghorns, and White Plymouth Rocks. They were developed to be a general-purpose bird that could withstand the harsh northern climate. Buff Chantecler chicks are solid buff colored with some having dark brown spots on top of the head. They have a cushion comb and clean, yellow legs and feet. Adults have a long, broad body that is covered with buff or straw-colored plumage.
