About Langshan ChickensAbout Langshan Chickens

Langshan, also known as Croad Langshan, hensrnlay three medium to large brown eggs a week. They lay into the winter monthsrnand usually average 150 eggs per annum. Langshans mature slowly as layers andrnmeat producers. At twenty four weeks they dress out at seven pounds. Theyrnproduce a good quality meat, but their shape lends itself more to a roasterrnthan a fryer. Langshans can easily clear a six foot fence. They toleraternextremes in temperature from 100 degrees Fahrenheit to subzero.rnrn 

rnrnLangshansrnoften surprise first-time owners. For a large fowl they prove quite active.rnFortunately, Langshans also possess a docile, calm, and friendly disposition.rnThey tame easily and live long. Langshans make a good family pet. Thernadaptable Langshan takes to foraging or confinement with equal ease. Langshanrnhens brood more than some like; however, they also make good brooders for otherrnbreeds and good mothers to their own. rnrn 

rnrnLangshanrnroosters can stand twenty-four inches to thirty-two inches tall. They rank asrnone of the tallest and lightest, non-game Asiatic breed in the world. Theirrntall, regal deportment translates well in the show ring. Langshans also have arnsixteen inch tail. The American Poultry Association recognizes three varietiesrnof Langshan chickens: Black, White, and Blue. Black Langshan, the most commonrnconfiguration, has black feathers with a green sheen. They stand on blackrnfeathered, bluish-gray legs and feet. Their medium-sized, bright red combs,rnwattles, and earlobes stand out against their very black plumage. Change thernblack feathers to white, and you get the White Langshan. The very rare BluernLangshan comes from crossing the Black and White Langshans.rnrn 

rnrnLangshans canrnsurvive about any climate. However, production and appearance can suffer inrnextreme conditions. For best results keep them warm, dry, and clean. They needrnfood ad libitum during their skeletal development. Provide good layer food forrnthe hens. Enclose the run with six or seven feet fencing or clip their wings tornprevent flight. They tolerate confinement but as an active breed willrnappreciate room to forage. Langshans suffer less than other breeds with theirrnfeet; however, keep an eye out for mud balls between the toes.
