Pros: Friendly, Engaging Birds!
Cons: Can't think of one!
Back in the early 2000's I was in Appenzell Switzerland. When I heard the chicken name, Appenzeller Sptizhauben, I had to get one. Boy was I in for a treat! What lovely birds. I started with four...because of there "hair cuts", I named them John, Paul George and Ringo...Paul and George became Paula and Georgia! John was the best rooster I ever had...affectionate and fiercely protective of his flock, including the turkeys in it. Georgia and Paula, were so affectionate. They would ride on my shoulder and jump up in my lap and loved to be petted. I lived in Northern NY and they were good in both the extreme cold and the warmer temps. Fun, lively and smart. I moved and had to give them away, but as soon as I can get chickens again, they are the first to get!!!
