The Green-legged partridge is a type of chicken in Poland (also called Galician chickens), which was brought to Poland after the war. This breed is classified as general use. Green-legged eggs are great for feeding children and the elderly with health problems. Green-legged eggs contain 30% less cholesterol than other chicken eggs (this is a genetic trait).
In 1923, the standard for this breed was created in Poland. These chickens were kept on farms in Poland until the 1960s, when large farms were established in the 1970s, breeding of this breed was stopped because these chickens were not well adapted to large flocks and non-range breeding.
Between 1946 and 1954, Laura Kaufman crossed the Green Legged Partridge breed with American Plymouth Rock birds to create the Polbar.
- Roosters : 2.2-2.7 kg
