Anyone With Appenzellar Spitzhaubens? Question?????

Discussion in 'General breed discussions & FAQ' started by SandyC, Sep 10, 2008.

    I got 5 Sptiz chicks this spring and 3 are looking to be roosters. How well do the roosters of this breed get along? I hate to get rid of any of them, but I don't want them tearing apart the backs of my hens and fighting. I do have 8 other hens of other breeds too.

    Thanks!

    You might want to pm Allenwranch and ask her. She raises show quality APs. Here's a pic of some of her birds I took back in May.

    My roosters get along with the girls and never had any problems with aggressiveness. Maybe its the bloodlines. Mine are from Ideal and the roos were from CarlaOk's stock. Now I need to get some of Allenwranch's hatching eggs next year! [​IMG]

    I have 4 roosters and 7 pullets. I have not witnessed hostile behavior in any of them. I have seen them try mounting the females... the usual rooster treatment there.
    I got mine from Cackle in late March 2010.
