The Ixworth is a breed of chicken originating in the village of Ixworth in Suffolk, England. It is a dual-purpose fowl that comes in single, white-feathered variety. Developed in 1932, it was created from crosses of the white types of Sussex, Minorca, Orpington and Indian Game chickens. With the white skin valued in the British market, it is especially suited to meat production. They have pea combs and lay a fair amount of eggs.
