Pros: beautiful, good egg layers, friendly, alert, hardy
Cons: they fly high, and can jump very high
I have a pair of female silver spangled Hamburgs. They are really close to wild birds. They like to lay their eggs outside the coop in a corner away from everyone else. They attempt to roost right before sundown, so we have to be alert because they can jump really high, and like to try to roost on the fence! They are high fliers, so you must clip their wings. Pictures don't do them justice, there is a beautiful green sheen on their black polka dots. I find mine to be very friendly, and very busy. They have a loud call when they are excited about something, different from my other breeds of chickens. They lay small to medium eggs, and so far I get an egg either every day, or every other day from my pair.
