The Caumont is from the Calvados are of Lower Normandy, France. It is a rare breed with a comb similar to that of a Buttercup. Behind the comb is a small, backward-growing crest.

The minimum weight for roosters is 3 kg. (7 lb.) and for hens is 2.5 kg. (6 lb). Black is the only color this breed appears in.
