    I've gotten her spitzhauben eggs, packed VERY well with lots of bubbles! I believe I got eight eggs, and got four chicks, one died in shell...not bad at all!

    I also bought her Spitzhauben rooster which he had a great home and he will be back to visit my girls in the fall. The rooster was very healthy and bubbly personality about himself. Friendly too! If you buy her birds, you must be prepared to pay for the extra price because she has invest alot of time and money to raise them, culls them heavily to get up to the standard of the breed.

    As far as the shipping eggs, dont expect a big hatch because shipping is hard on them.

    Thanks for sharing!
    Do you keep your Spitzhaubens in a run? if so how do they do?

    I was interested in these but read
    "not very tolerant of close confinement"

    in Henderson chart
