A Black Langshan cockerel

This long legged, feather-legged bird appears in both black and white varieties and has dark brown eyes.

There seem to be 4 types of Langshans. Croad Langshans have a backline that forms a "U" shape from head to tail -- I believe that's the fowl we just call the Langshan in the US. Australian Langshans are similar, but have their tails at a 45 degree angle from the back. German Langshans are like the Australians, but clean legged. German Modern Langshans have more the build and type of Modern Games. I hope I got this right!
