    Hello! We are new to the children world. Starting our little farm this past June. We started with 48 chicks of all different kinds. We have sold a few Polish, Spitzhauben and Red Cochin. We have also put 12 in the freezer. We now have 30. They are free range but they go up at night. I believe right now we have 19 laying hens. We just started getting green eggs from our Ameraucana I think. Looking forward to learning from you all.

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. You have quite a diverse mix of chickens. I've owned dozens of different breeds over the past 50 years, but never had Spitzhaubens. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.

    [​IMG]hi and welcome to Backyard chickens. Your birds are beautiful - they look like they are all groomed up for a show.

    I think spitzhauben are one of the most gorgeous chickens breed.

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]We're glad to have you.

    To me, your unidentified bird (if its the white one in the middle of the photo) looks like a White Chantecler.
