Belgian Bearded d'Anver Bantam Chickens are sociable, regal, pet-sized and low maintenance. They are an excellent addition to a backyard poultry flock.
The breed has been identified for more than 400 years. The Dutch artist Albert Cuyp painted d'Anvers in the 1700s. Malaysian sailors imported chickens with d'Anvers characteristics during the same period. In 1949 the Belgian Bearded d'Anver Bantam was recognized by the American Poultry association. Breeders have now developed the breed to today's standard of excellence. In addition to long recognition in Europe and Great Britain, the Belgian Bearded d'Anver Bantam is a favorite show bird in the United States. It has been recognized by the Standard of Perfection in the American Poultry Association since 1949.
The American Poultry Association and the American Bantam Association recognize fourteen colors, from quail to porcelain white. Most d'anvers are quail colored. We offer the following colors: Black, Blue Quail, and Quail. Any blue variety ordered from Purely Poultry may include chicks with black, blue, or splash plumage patterns.
