The Campine is a Belgian breed whose origins are thought to date back to the time of Julius Caesar.
The breed is known for a modified form of " hen feathering" in which the male doesn't develop the long sickle feathers in the tail or the pointed hackle and saddle feathers. A Cock with very long, curved sickle feathers or long and profuse saddle feathers will be disqualified in shows.
Campines are said to be friendly, chatty birds that are good foragers and fliers. Very attractive birds, with lustrous plumage that is solid on the head and hackles and barred on the body, they are largely treated as ornamentals in North America, yet they are a good laying breed. Hens produce more than two hundred medium-sized eggs per year and rarely go broody.
The Campine was first admitted to the APA in 1914.
