Bergische Kraeher

This is one of the German long-crowing breeds, with a crow similar to that of the Tomaru. It is from the Bergisches Land region of Germany, in the vicinity of Solingen.

Males weigh 6-7 pounds and females 4-5 pounds. The egg color is white and they produce perhaps 150 eggs in a year.

A bantam form is also known to exist, tho' I've never seen pictures of any.
