Howdy, y'all.  New to Back Yard Chickens but been around chickens most of my life especially as a youngster.  I had 100 chickens and a handful of ducks as part of my 4H project in Tennessee.  Most recently my wife and I kept up to a dozen chickens and a single rooster mostly Rhode Island Reds.  I always wanted an Appenzeller Spitzhauben  It is a breed I first saw when traveling through that region years ago but for some reason never got one.  I just think they are so cool and since my heritage is Swiss I figured it would go well with my Bernese Mountain Dog.  I may yet teach the Bernese to pull a cart and then go to our local rural fair with the dog, the cart and a Spitzhauben riding in the cart.  Now that would be a sight.

 

Not much else.  I will lurk in the background and learn from others.  From what I have read to this point it sounds like y'all got a pretty good handle on raising chickens and it is a good opportunity for me to learn more.

Appenzeller Spitzhaubens are gorgeous breeds. I hope you find some soon for your flock! Good luck!
