Langshan Breed

Posted

Pros: Broody, Great Layer, Not Aggressive

Cons: Hatchery birds can't compare

I purchased my first pair of Langshans from Forrest Beauford in Claremore, OK. From that date, I have never wanted any other breed. They can and will be ferocious broodies, lay eggs better than any other Asiatic breed I have had and the males are never aggressive unless a hen sounds an alarm. The eggs are large and can vary from light cream to a very dark brown. They do well in confinement. Birds from a hatchery cannot compare to a bird from a quality breeder. You will not get the size or temperament that a bred-to-standard bird has.   I now have blues, blacks and whites in Largefowl and blues, blacks and whites in bantams. Feel free to PM or email me for any information that...

Awesome egg layers and huge confidant birds

Posted
I have some off the new breeds the eggs were sent from over sea.  I have a blue and a splash langshan.  The grown birds of this breed he had was huge and walked with such confidance.  Almost cocky, if you will.  LOL  Such goergeous birds.  Such a awesome breeder that I got them from too.  You can check out his site if you want too.  It is www.pawheadpoultry.com   they will ship to you if you want.

Gentle Giants!

Posted

Pros: Sweet, Elegant, the Great Dane of the chicken world

Cons: Broody! Get from a reputable line...not a hatchery.

I'm just getting back in to Langshans (thanks Rodriguez Poultry for the re-start!) after about 15 years away from them, but I wanted to share my experiences with the flock I had growing up...(Both times my birds were from the Beuford line.)   They are truly the "Gentle Giant" of the chicken world.  I also have Great Danes, and these birds are so similar its not even funny!  The roosters get very large and take a while to do so (they'll look goofy until about 2, and then they're stunning!)  Hens develop pretty normally and are very distinguished and sweet-but they do get broody!  Both sexes will be very large and stand tall (sometimes as tall as a turkey!) so you...

Gentle and Smart.

Posted

Pros: Very beautiful, boys are gentle with hens, nice to people, smart.

Cons: Size could be bad for people who have a setup for small or medium chickens.

    I have a black Langshan rooster that was supposed to be an australorp. He is very sweet and gentle with the girls and other roosters. I do not know about laying or broodiness because I only have a boy. He scares people with his intimidating size and dark eyes, but he is a big baby. He is gorgeous with a very deep crow.

Love my Langshans!

Posted

Pros: Quite, docile, good layers

Cons: Can't think of any

I love my Langshans. I tried giving them 5 stars, but my ipad will only let me do 4.5. This breed will always be apart of my flock. My langshans are good layers and are very friendly to people (and kids). Mine have not gone broody yet, but I have read that they can. They are perfect for a backyard flock since they are a very quiet bird. Great bird.

My baby!

Posted

Pros: So sweet, pretty, fluffy, and AMAZING!

Cons: Develop slower, a little jumpy

I love my baby Happy Feet! She's my fluffy little girl! Yes she developed slower, but it just makes her all the more innocent :) She's super sweet and a little jumpy, she lets me hold her and pet her but when I put her down she's eager to wiggle and jump out LOL! Love her!!!

Great rooster, I will never eat him!

Posted

Pros: Handsome, mellow, big.

Cons: Kind of a loner, not sure how protective he would be...

My Langshan has become my favorite rooster by far.  He is almost a year old, very mellow, and I can't say as I've ever heard him crow.  He is by far the most handsome rooster I have had.  I like this guy and would give him away before eating him.  If I didn't have other chicken objectives (raising Dominiques or Welsummers for the apocalypse) I would seriously consider just raising and breeding Langshans.
