Origin, diffusion and economic characteristics

Bantam (dwarf) breed of Belgian origin.
It was obtained by an Antwerp Barbute breeder from Kortenberg, a small village near Brussels, around 1904.
The absence of the tail is due to a genetic mutation (quite common). Especially in Belgium, tailless breeds were quite popular, also because they were thought to be less catchable by predators (foxes).
Raised for sporting purposes.
Females are docile and sociable, while males are rebellious.

Morphological characteristics

There are many varieties: entirely black, white, fawn, cuckoo, barred, silvered, mottled blue, black and blue speckled with white, Andalusian blue, ermellinate fawn, millefiori and porcelain.
Similar to the Barbuta of Antwerp, apart from the absence of the tail.
Short neck with thick tripartite beard; body large enough; the wings are carried drooping.
Medium weight:
- Gauls 0.65 kg
- Hens kg 0,55
