    Your not looking hard enough ;) I have a spitz hen. And quite frankly I think everyone in Idaho should raise them because they are GREAT layers and can handle extremely hard winters and LOVE the trees.

    I was told I had a Mottled Houdan,but nah...he's a Spitzhauben. I call him Kramer, he's a sweet bird and fun to watch running in the yard chasing bugs.

    This is my roo Ziggy. My friend aquired a few and can't have a roo in her county, so he came to us. LOVE HIM! Very sweet and loves to have his head rubbed. We plan to get more.[​IMG]
