Opps forgot to post my question. Anyway I got these on ebay as eggs hatched them out now they are 3 weeks nice lil chickies but are the Appenzeller Spithaubens? They dont have any crests, nor have they spoke a word of German.
They also don't have the correct comb.
those arent spitzhaubens.
They don't seem to be getting the correct color coming in either.
I have some Spitzhauben chicks that are 2 weeks old and one that is 3 weeks old. They look totally different that yours. At least one of yours, maybe two, have single combs and they should not.
Mine are also fluent in German and I caught one goose stepping. (JK!)
Gimme a minute and I'll post a pic or two.
ET: Correct my incomplete thoughts. lol
Ok yes please post pics of your chicks. I messaged the seller on ebay asking what is going on with a link to this thread. Was it a mix up. something like that.
Quote:These are my three Spitzhauben chicks. The two smaller ones are about 10 days younger than the larger one. I have the parents and had just grabbed the odd egg to put into a couple of incubators with some other eggs I set.
Pardon the smudge on the larger ones "shoulder". It's poop. Tried to wash it off. Gave up.
Here is a close up, or as close as I could get, to the larger ones comb and "do".
Hope this helps....I was thinking the chicks you hatched looked a little California Whites...but what do I know!
Thanks! ya i dont have those. my daughter looked on the net and said well they look like CA whites. I see also this seller has sold Delawares.
Quote:Bummer. Sorry. I hope he refunds your money or sends you more eggs (the ones you want!). Can you complain to ebay? Or at least leave negative feedback?
