A Crevecoeur rooster

The history of this crested French breed is not really known, although it was developed in the Normandy area and is named after a village there.

Its plumage is a lustrous green-black and it sports a V-comb. The cocks can reach a weight of 8 pounds. The somewhat smaller hens lay a white egg.

Here is an SPPA paper on the old French breeds.
