The Campine is a very old Belgian breed that is known for laying a high number of white eggs and having a unique and striking color pattern. Campines were first imported into the U.S. in the 1890s and were officially recognized by the American Poultry Association in 1914. We will be offering the Gold variety which is characterized by a solid gold hackle while the remainder of the body is barred with wide bands of black and narrow bands of golden bay. Campine males are also unique in that they don’t develop the long, curved sickle feathers or long pointed hackle and saddle feathers like most other breeds, a condition called hen-feathering. Campines make a wonderful addition to any flock with their beautiful and unique feather pattern. They are also excellent egg layers and quite active foragers.
