Penedesenca

The Penedesenca chicken breed originated from Spain in the 1920s. It has a harmonic and vigorous appearance and is known for its fantastic egg laying abilities. The Penedesenca is a very active breed and doesn't do well in confinement to small areas, they need a large space to run about.
