    *Edited-I think I have 3 Roos?!

    Started out with six chicks. The Spitzhauben is definitely a rooster as he has attempted to crow at a very young age (about four weeks). The other two show roo characteristics from what I’m reading. Fingers crossed that I’m wrong or if I’m not wrong, we stop at three roos 😔. I have two Easter...

    Do apenzeller spitzhaubens need a coop?

    Ok so to start I have NEVER owned chickens. Im trying to gather as much info as I can before building the enclosure for the 4 spitzhauben chicks I was given. Ive been reading a lot about how this breed likes its space and while I can't completely free range because of predators, I was thinking...

    Silver Spitzhauben chick

    All 5 of my Spitz chicks have been very flighty and skittish, up until a couple days ago. This little one has become very curious with me, and it looks as though it has some pink in its tiny little wattles. Thoughts? It’ll be 3 weeks old on Friday. Single comb chicks are so much easier to sex!!

He loves to eat out of your hand and pouts if he does not get to, loves to talk to people, and is a super...

    Breeding Project, will it work?

    I am soon going to have gold laced sebrights and gold spangled bantam appenzeller spitzhauben. While i want to breed the sebrights towards the sop, i also want to try my own project. That would be creating a small, gold laced and crested (hopefully crest will remain of the spitzhauben type). I...

    ISO Silver Appenzeller Rooster

    I am in search of a Silver Spitzhauben Appenzeller Rooster. We are in Central Florida and lost alot of birds during hurricane Irma. I had several of my Silkies and frizzled Cochins drown in their coops. Lost a bunch of our "eating" egg layers and 3 of my Appenzellers which included my roosters...
