Campine

A Belgian bird, the Campine do not often go broody, they are good layers but are a bit flighty. Their shanks and toes are leaden blue. This gorgeous Northern European fowl is valued for the large white eggs and beauty. Their close-fitting feathers and relatively large combs mean they’re not the most cold-hardy fowl, but they can certainly tolerate some cold as they were developed in an area with cold winters. Campines are active birds and love to forage.
