The basics:
The Campine is an old breed of chicken which was developed in Belgium's Campine region. Unfortunately, the Campine is currently highly endangered, and has been given a classification of "critical" by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. The "critical" category means, "Fewer than 500 breeding birds in the United States, with five or fewer primary breeding flocks (50 birds or more), and estimated global population less than 1,000."

The Campine looks exactly like the Braekel chicken (another Belgian breed). The difference between the two, is that the Braekel is a larger fowl.
