Langshan chickens
  • Medium

Attributes

Araucanas are best known for their coloured eggs, from blue through to green to olive-green, which are small to medium in size.  Araucanas can go broody and make excellent mothers.

Legbars are autosexing, which means the chicks can be sexed at hatching by the colour of their down.  They were developed as a commercial egg layer in the 1930s from the brown Leghorn and Plymouth Rock.  They have a good feed to egg conversion ratio, laying a large egg for a medium sized bird.  These chickens like to fly so are well suited to farm life.

Medium

Langshans have a good feed to egg ratio, laying a large egg for a medium sized bird and rarely go broody, so are well suited to uninterrupted egg laying.
