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. Today, it is still one of the most common chickens in Croatia.

(Breeders and sellers have to jump through hoops to get RightPet listings, literally, we make them do circus tricks. Unfortunately no one has met our high acrobatic standards for this animal yet, but hopefully they will soon!)

(We've had no luck finding any of these frisky fellas so far, even though we've put up wanted posters and everything! But don't worry, we're working on it!)
