Pavlovskaya

The Pavlovskaya hen is Russia’s most ancient chicken breed. Many centuries ago this breed emerged in the town of Pavlovo, about 200 miles east of Moscow. Pavlovskaya chickens are known to be extremely cold hardy and have unique feathering on their feet that is similar to the feathering on wild grouse.
