The Campine is a Belgian bird, good layers that don’t get broody very often but they are a nervous bird and easily scared.
Their toes and shanks are a bluish grey, more of an ornamental bird. They have close fitting feathers are fairly large combs so the aren’t the best for very cold regions but they can survive the winters if the weather doesn’t get below zero too often. They are good foragers and active when they have the chance to free range.
The birds first showed up in Britain around 1899 and in America around 1912. The Campine’s coloration is somewhat bettle green and black with gold head and neck feathers, sometimes a white head and neck.
