Developed in Germany around 1950 by crossing Rhode Island Reds, New Hampshires and Wyandottes, the Dresdner is rarely found outside its country of origin. It has a Wyandotte comb and yellow skin. The Goldbraun (Gold-Brown) is similar to the color of a New Hampshire. The Black-Red/Partridge has a black breast but otherwise resembles in color the Welsummer. They are also found in Black and White varieties.
