North Holland Blue
The North Holland Blue is a breed of chicken originating in the province of North Holland. Created around the turn of the 20th century as laying breed, North Holland Blues come in single variety with black and white striped pattern called Cuckoo. North Holland Blues have quiet, docile temperaments, and hens are good layers of light brown eggs. In the 21st century, they are rather rare, being almost unknown outside their native country and the United Kingdom. North Holland Blues have white skin, and are clean-legged in their home country. British breed standards call for feathered legs.
