This is a German breed. It is somewhat like a rumpless variety of the Belgian d'Uccles, bearded and with a smaller comb, especially on the males. They appear in the same color varieties as the d'Uccle. It is also similar to the Belgian d'Everberg.

Cocks weigh around 700 g. and hens around 600. Their eggs are cream-colored.
