The newest stamps from PostNL feature drawings and photographs of ten Dutch chicken breeds. Each chicken is depicted in a characteristic pose, with its head turned to face the chicken on the stamp opposite. The background is a close-up photograph of the plumage of the relevant chicken breed (the colour variety), with a photograph of a feather of the chicken next to it. The stamps are marked ‘Nederland 1’, the denomination for items up to 20g in weight destined for mail within the Netherlands. The stamp sheetlet was designed by Birza Design in Deventer.
