The basics:
The Croatian Hen was created in 1917, by breeder Ivan Lukas, in the Podravina Province. The breeds' hardy nature, foraging abilities, meat and egg quality, good health, and mothering abilities made it an ideal fowl, and the Croatian Hen quickly became popular throughout Medimurje and Podravina.
