Chicken of Padua

Behavior and character
The Padua is a calm and gentle bird; its nature makes it an ideal pet if you have small children who will be unable to resist the temptation to hold and cuddle this hen, which it tolerates very well.

Occasionally she may be nervous and try to flee by flying, but this is usually due to visual problems caused by her head plumage. Talking or whistling as your chicken approaches will let her know you’re coming, and she’ll be less likely to jump up.

Their friendliness means that they are often placed relatively low in the hierarchy, and their large feather headdress can cause pecking from other breeds; this is something to watch out for if you are also housing other breeds of more dominant hens.

Padova hens are known to be very curious. Unfortunately, sometimes they end up trapped somewhere and often need your help to get out.
