In March of this year, chicken math struck our family yet again. Before we knew it, we were making the roadtrip to pick up our Isbars from Brinkhaven Acres as well as stopping at Meyer afterwards for a Fayoumi and Spitzhauben (keep in mind that this is after I had received 15 bantams for my birthday). But as usual we got sucked into the wonderful world of "the overstock bin of joy!" So, instead of abiding by our original plan, we left with a Cream Legbar, 2 Fayoumis, and 2 Spitzhaubens. We've virtually no self-control when it comes to our bird problem, in case you can't tell. Immediately, Cassie began jumping out of their transport box into my lap repeatedly until I couldn't open the lid anymore, lest she somehow get lost in the car. It became apparent to me that those two little Spitz were on a level of orneriness/lovableness/quirkiness that I hadn't seen since Alex. And to this day, they have remained one of my very favorite breeds as well as a couple of my favorite girls in our flock. I personally feel that, given their stunning, unique look all their own, Spitz are incredibly underrated, and I would like to bring more attention to this fabulous breed. No flock is complete without two or ten!
