Vorwerk chickens were bred from lakenfelder , yellow Orpington, yellow Ramelslohern, Andalusians and the Sotteghams from 1900 onwards. In 1912 the breeding results were shown for the first time in Hanover and Berlin: Very strong, compact, not too bony country fowl shape with hardly medium height. Both sexes with the same drawing facilities. The aim of breeding, then and now, is a coarse, strong and stocky country hen with good economic properties, which with its beautiful, deep yellow color and black hangings, fits on every farm.
