    they look really nice, exactly like i remember them from years ago
    below 2 pics of my campine chick 1 day and 8 days old
    as i mentioned before they differ somewhat from brakelchicks, more white in the body and less brown on the head

    2 full grown Campine chickens from 2013 and 2 chicks from last week.
    One chick is however very white, even for a Campine.
    I'm afraid it got some Groninger Meeuw mixed into it.
    What do you think?
