    "perfect pet for people without kids and who..."
    Pros - won't get in your way, outside chicken, great in predator neighborhoods
    Cons - sometimes paranoid, not great with kids
    It is a great chicken for eggs. It is not the best one for companionship

    "Took her a while"
    Pros - Sweet, Calm
    Cons - Elusive, Broody
    When we got her she was elusive and did not like to be held. At about a year old she went broody & has turned into the biggest sweetheart but I can't break her brood!

    "Great little birds"
    Pros - Pretty, good layer, inquisitive
    Cons - Flighty
    My Hamburgs are good, consistent layers and beautiful birds. Although a little flighty, they warm up to you after a while and are very curious. Definitely "personality" birds.

    The picture used as a cover picture is not a hamburg at all.

    As few months later she is broody AGAIN! Now she is sitting on some silkie eggs <3

    Some might consider your hen quite an asset because I don't think the Hamburgs are known to be broody. Cherish her and put her to work!!!

      I kept silver spangled for several years in Colorado. Winter lows down to -16 and they did well here.
