Langshan Chicken is an Asiatic Chicken which is small compared to a Cochin Chicken or Brahma Chicken, but still fairly large in the grander Chicken scheme of things. Langshan cocks can weigh up to 9.5 pounds (4.3 kg) and Langshan hens can grow to 7.5 pounds (3.4 kg).

Production

The Langshan Chicken was bred in the port city of Lanshan, China for centuries, where they were excellent layers of very dark brown eggs. As mentioned above, they are also of a decent size and have an abundance of White Meat Chicken.
