These birds are from Kosova, which was part of Yugoslavia before that country became history.

The birds are black, usually have green legs, a yellow beak and red or black eyes. The roosters weigh 2-3 kg and the hens from 1.5-2 kg. The hens are nonsitters, but only produce 50-70 eggs per year. Chicks hatch out brown.

Although their crow averages 20-40 seconds, exceptional birds will go on for 60 seconds. In the third year the crow starts to become shorter.

A similar but larger bird is the Sanjak Longcrower.
