Breed Traits

Campines are closely feathered with pronounced black barring beginning at the bottom of the neck. They have a large red single comb that flops to one side and prominent dark eyes. The legs of a Campine are dark blue like a Silkie, but the skin around the face is red. Funny enough, the males of this breed can turn out to be “hen-feathered,” which means they do not develop the feathers that are prominent in roosters: sickle feathers, pointed neck feathers, and saddle hackle feathers.



 

Campines are a light breed which tends towards flightiness, like Leghorns. They are very active, and love to forage. 

Campines consistently lay medium to large sized white eggs through the year, usually around 4 a week.

Breed History

The Campine is an ancient breed that originated in the Campine region of Belgium. It was developed for its laying ability.
