Campine

Campines are a gorgeous Northern European fowl valued for their large white eggs and beauty. Their close-fitting feathers and relatively large combs mean they're not the most cold-hardy fowl, but they can certainly tolerate some cold as they were developed in an area with cold winters. Campines are active birds and love to forage.
