    What is the difference between a silver spangled appenzeller spitzhauben chicken vs polish chicken? Here is one I'm wondering about.

    Wow, that’s a cool looking chicken! Looks like a mix between the two.

    That is a spitzhauben. Shes not too bad looking. Crest is a little spred wide. I raise spitzies and one of mine has a fan crest.
    This is a more proper crested female. My roo is standing behind her to the left.

    And her sister which also has a decent crest and fair spangling. Again my roo Jake is trying to photobomb.

    Thanks. They are so pretty, and I love how some of the spots in the first pic are heart shaped!

    Agreed, that's a Spitzhauben. Finding a Silver Spangled Polish would be very rare for starters. Polish are larger and have a much larger crest than Spitzhaubens.

    That's a spitzhauben with a bit of a wide/spread crest
