The Vorwerk is personally my favourite breed of all time. Originating from Germany, it is a rare fowl with striking black and gold plumage. They are very hardy, adaptable birds with economical appetites! The Vorwerk is classed as a light breed, a dual purpose bird used both for meat and egg production. They are alert and active but are not seen as flighty in anyway. We have a lovely trio which have proven good eggs layers, with a high fertility rate.
