Langshan

These are the source of lovely brownish pink eggs.​

​The Langshan is assumed to originate in China.  In the late 1800s Major F. T. Croad of England imported some of these birds to England and began working with him.  He was such a strong force in championing this breed that his line kept his name for generations; in fact they are still sometimes referred to as “Croad Langshans.”  The stock in the US that was imported is from his line, so all US birds source back to the Croad Langshan line.  They are a large, soft feathered breed of fantastic size but very calm temperament.

We have a SQ black rooster over blue, black, and splash hens, and recently added a very nice blue cockerel to the breeder flock as well, the son of the black rooster. We mainly hatch blue and black chicks from them but do on occasion get a splash.  These birds are magnificent and huge, you cannot tell from pictures how much presence they have.  Our Langshan are very calm birds, they are the gentle giants of the chicken yard.

Some Langshan lay a brown egg with a plum or pink bloom on them.  We have some light brown and some pinkish brown layers in our flock. Please note Langshan do NOT lay plum or purple eggs.  Those that you see online have been digitally altered.
