The Pavlovskaya breed of chickens was noticed and appreciated only at the end of the XNUMXth century, when these birds were on the verge of extinction.

The name of this chicken breed was given by the village of Pavlovo (Nizhny Novgorod province). This village was famous for many unique facts from history. For example, local craftsmen widely developed blacksmithing, and therefore Catherine II even allowed them to travel around the Empire and sell their products.

In addition to blacksmithing, the inhabitants were enthusiastically engaged in breeding chickens, oatmeal canaries, fighting geese and many other birds, which they brought from distant wanderings. It is believed that Pavlovsk chickens were also brought from their travels, and over time they have changed.

Although, according to recessive traits, scientists can safely say that this is precisely the Pavlovian breed of chickens. Simple Russian poultry farmers managed to get the original breed, which later became the standard of decorative chickens around the world.

Thanks to modern breeders, the Pavlovian chicken was returned to Russia.
