North Holland Blue

The North Holland Blue is a breed of chicken originating in the province of North Holland. Created around the turn of the 20th century as laying breed, North Holland Blues come in single variety with black and white striped pattern called Cuckoo. North Holland Blues have quiet, docile temperaments, and hens are good layers of light brown eggs.

British breed standards call for feathered legs.

Famous quotes containing the words blue, north and/or holland:

    This side of the truth,
    You may not see, my son,
    King of your blue eyes
    In the blinding country of youth,
    That all is undone,
    Under the unminding skies....
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    Exporting Church employees to Latin America masks a universal and unconscious fear of a new Church. North and South American authorities, differently motivated but equally fearful, become accomplices in maintaining a clerical and irrelevant Church. Sacralizing employees and property, this Church becomes progressively more blind to the possibilities of sacralizing person and community.
    Ivan Illich (b. 1926)

    Naggers always know what they are doing. They weigh up the risks, then they go on and on and on until they get what they want or until they get punched.
    —Jools Holland (b. 1958)
