The Vogtländer chickens are medium-sized chickens with a strong country fowl shape and a medium-high position. They show close-fitting plumage and are lively and agile.
Bred in the Vogtland for decades from Andalusians, partridge-colored Rhinelander, Welsummer and Dominicans. The Vogtlanders combine many very good characteristics of their original breeds. They are robust, weather-resistant, precocious and are very good forage seekers. In 1979 they were recognized in Leipzig. source
