Dresden chickens are cattle chickens with particularly good feed conversion, which also lay very well in winter. The chickens hardly mind wet or cold weather. The willingness to lay falls only slightly during the winter months. In rare cases, such as the Dresden performance test, hens lay well over 220 eggs. They are therefore particularly attractive for private owners.
