    I was given this pair and told they come from Spitzhauben eggs. I am doubtful. The hen has a small crest, the roo no crest. They don't look like the right thing. They are about 6 months old, both supposedly hatched from the same clutch. They are the size of a large bantam (like a Brabanter or a Polish).
    If anyone knows what they are please let me know. Thanks!

    They may very well have come from Spitzhauben eggs some of the genetics seems to be apparent, but there is little doubt that 'Daddy' was something else. That being said, they are very attractive cross breds.
