    I've got a mystery on my hands. I picked up a silver spangled hamburg pullet at Buchiets that was prob about a week or so old and after a few days I noticed she was starting to gets a small crest which i just wrote off as baby fuzz but she's still got it 2 weeks later and it's gotten bigger, she came from Ideal. My hamburg roo didn't have a crest and I'm wondering if any of y'all have seen a hamburg with a crest. Ideal also sells German Spitzhauben and I was wondering if by some chance she could be one of these instead of a hamburg. I can't find a pic of a young Spitzhauben to compare her too.

    I tried but it will only post 1/2 of it and its' the wrong 1/2 i'll try again when i get home. She looks just like my hamburg roo did at that age but with a little crest it's just odd.

    She really favors yours that would be so awesome if she was because I've been wanting one.

    Spitzhaubens have V combs, even in a small chick you can see the comb, it's just a mini version. Hamburgs have rose combs.
