Norwegian Jaerhon Chickens
The Jaerhon is the only breed that is credited to Norway. It was developed around 1920 by breeders around the town of Stavanger on the southern Atlantic coast of Norway. The breed first made its way to North America only recently, around the turn of the century. These birds are small, hardy, and active and are good fliers. The hens do not tend to go broody and they often wear themselves out by laying lots and lots of large eggs.
The breed has not yet been recognized by an poultry association in North America.
