Chicken Breeds item created by JessesGirl, Nov 6, 2013
Sweet tempered, docile, lightweight. Average sized eggs, lays almost daily.
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
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!
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!!!
what is there cold tolerence
I kept silver spangled for several years in Colorado. Winter lows down to -16 and they did well here.
