    I purchased five Hamburgs in a chick auction. I didn't know much about the breed. Since having gotten them, I don't think they are going to work out for me. I read since that they don't do well with confinement, and I live in town so free-range isn't really an option. They are also more flighty than my other chicks.

    I don't know yet what gender they are. They are approx 2 weeks old.

    They are from Duane Urch and should be quality birds.

    Golden-spangled variety.

    I would like $6/ea and they must be picked up.

    Anyone interested?

    Forgot to mention I will consider trades for other chicks - I esp like Faverolles, Cochins and Polish.

    Quote:From personal experience, I would say that that statement is not at all true [​IMG] I have raised the wonderful Hamburg Breed for a year and a half, and if anything, I would say they needed to be confined, because they are somewhat flighty.

    Hey that is an interesting take on it. Thanks for the feedback.

    Denna, you are about 3 hrs from us. We are up there a couple times a year, not sure when the next time will be. This coming weekend we are going to Othello.
