Out of all the breeds I have raised over the years, I can honestly say that the Modern langshan has become my top ten breeds. Why are they so over looked? You never see people really talking about them. They are such good egg laying machines. And the bulk and weight is so dense. They're excellant utility birds! Plus they're gorgeous and so docile to be such big birds. I guess its a good thing because their natural abilities have not been wiped clean turning them into show birds with tons of feathering making them useless for anything other than looks. I believe that people should really see what these birds are capable of and get them a couple for there back yard and they'll see what a treasure they have been over looking.
