Portmeirion Chickens

Portmeirion chickens are instantly recognisable by the little chicks under the wings.

Starting in 1963, by 1968 Portmeirion had five sizes of chicken from the largest size 1 down to the smallest size 5. By the 1970's the chickens were available in matt and gloss white, green, blue and brown. The sizes were reduced to 1, 2 and 3.

Blue and green were withdrawn in 1973 and Numbers 3 and 2 sizes were withdrawn in 1983, leaving the white number 1 chicken alone until it was retired in 1994

Truly a collecting classic.
