American Bresse

The American Bresse is an American take on an iconic French breed of poultry. Proudly displaying the colors of the French flag, Bresse have large red combs, bright white feathers, and steel blue legs. The Bresse, while rare in the U.S., has been around for over 500 years. These dual-purpose chickens are hardy, easy to raise and keep, active foragers, and have a great temperament. 

Want to add a light golden-brown egg to your egg basket? Bresse hens average 4-5 eggs per week. Eggs are a great quality of this breed, but it's nowhere near its best. 

Bresse are in high demand because, like beef, they can have marbled meat. This chicken really tastes like no other — imagine the juiciest grilled chicken breast ever. 

American Bresse chickens are not a fast-growing breed, but they are well worth the wait. Males reaching a mature weight of 6-7 pounds in about 16 weeks, and hens will average 4-5 pounds.
