Customer Product Reviews
I ordered 17 standard sized chickens, 8 of these were Black Langshans. I was completely surprised to receive 18 chickens all alive and well. I thought there would be a few that wouldn't make it. A few weeks later my waterer leaked which flooded the brooder. I had 7 chickens die but they were chickens that I received elsewhere. All of the young chicks purchased from McMurray Hatchery survived several hours of being cold and extremely wet. All of the birds I received are very hardy. I will certainly be ordering more Black Langshans again. The other breeds that I purchased includes Pearl White Leghorn, Turken and Red Star. I can recommend all of these breeds for the beginner. These birds are very easy to care for even if you have a few slip ups. McMurray Hatchery provides a quality product. Highly recommended! I was not disappointed.
We got a pair of Black Langshan last year for my son's 4H progect. They are beautiful birds! The hen has won "Best Asiatic" in 3 poultry shows, and the rooster does well, too. He is huge and showy, and a very gentle guy.
Possibly my favourites after the Sumatras. The Langshan really are gentle birds. The leg and feet feathers give an appearance of a goofy gait. A little shy perhaps.
I received a Black Langshan chick as a "free exotic" chick in a batch of chicks I ordered about 5 years ago. He has become a beautiful--no, absolutely gorgeous rooster. He herds the hens into the chicken house at night and checks for stragglers, he breaks up spats, and always has been gentle and friendly to people.
I recevied a male Black Langshan last spring. Although he may look mean and scary he is the complete opposite. He is what we call a "Friendly giant." -Thanks
Absolutely beautiful birds. Perfect homesteader material. They literally dissapear under the bushes when the hawks show up and are laying well, even in November, in *addition* to being such personable birds. Well Done!!
