Other common names: Ramelsloher Hoen
The Ramelsloher Chicken is a rare breed which was developed in northern Germany in the 18th century. The breed would have likely remained ignored, if visiting Hamburg shipowners known as the Wichmann family had not taken the fowl and begun to selectively breed them. In 1874, the Wichmann family began to exhibit and standardize the Ramelsloher.
