History

Ixworth Chickenswere created by Reginald Appleyard (of Ducks fame) in 1932 taking as their name the village in Suffolk where he lived. Ixworth Chickens were intended to be a good table bird that could lay. Their genetic make up included White Sussex, White Orpington, White Minorca, Jubilee, Indian and a white game. The bantam version was stabilised and released in 1938 but has virtually disappeared.
