The Langshan is a very proud bird with great posture and is also very active. The Langhan is a great winter layer and can produce, on average, 200-220 eggs per year. It is also known for its meat, which makes it a good dual-purpose bird. The two predominant varieties are the early maturing Chinese (Australian) and the rare, but heavier, Croad. They are shown in different classes at shows.
