Dresden chicken (Gallus gallus f. dom.)

A real performance chicken

This fastly growing, wheather-resistent breed was bred in the years 1948-53 from delicate performance animals (Wyandotte chicken, Rhode Island Reds and New Hamphshires) at the suburban area of Dresden. They count as dual-purpose-breed, which exploit their food especially well. The laying rate amounts to about 180 eggs per year, their meat is pale and not fibrous.
They are calm and most trusting towards humans.
