High-end French chicken breeders have been left outraged after a video shot in their famous village, involving a pseudo "farmer's daughter" turned out to be anything but your average chick flick. It was in fact a hardcore porn film.

The x-rated video was shot in the tiny village of Loué in central France, which is famous for its free-range birds, and up until this week was only known for its posh brand of poultry.

Stunned local residents first became aware of the video last month, while it was being shot in broad daylight. They eventually chased off the “farmer’s daughter”, her partner and the camera crew filming them. Sometime later one of the farmers found the video online and brought it to the attention of the head of Loué's poultry industry.

It carries this introduction: "The producers went to meet 33-year-old Sophie, a chicken breeder, who wanted to make a video for her husband as a Valentine's Day gift." The film which is hosted on a French porn video sharing site, has garnered some 2.2 million views since going online on February 12. 

It opens innocently enough with the woman posing near the roadside sign for the famous village, but things quickly turn explicit. 

“No, she’s she’s not a Loué chicken breeder. You’d have to be naive to believe that, she’s an actress,” said Yves de La Fouchardière, director of Fermiers de Loué cooperative, told French paper Les Nouvelles. “I don’t want to stir people’s curiosity and therefore encourage them to go see the video on the site. I don’t want to help build their audience. This site is soliciting prostitution.”

After a little investigation local police in the Sarthe department, also confirmed it was unlikely that the "farmer’s daughter” was a chicken breeder. "We found her on other websites", they said.

"On our side, we ensured that no one who took part in the filming of this video was under duress and that no-one was injured," a police spokesman told French paper Ouest France.

To date, no criminal complaints have been filed, because there are no known victims.

However, shooting a porn movie in broad daylight on the street is against the law in France. Prosecutors said they can file charges if anyone comes forward who witnessed sexual conduct during the shoot.

This isn’t the first time the makers of French x-rated movie makers have sparked outrage over their choice of shooting location.

In December 2013 school officials threatened to sue after they learned an X-rated film had been posted online that included several sex scenes, that were shot right in front of the institution. (See below)
