My information about this breed was mostly supplied by J. B. Urban

This Danish fowl is quite endangered at present, although there is archeological evidence that this type of chicken has existed for over 2,000 years.

Landhøne can also be spelled Landhoene.

The Danske Landhøne is closely related to the Danske Luttehøne.
