    Welcome to the forum. You have a nice selection of chickens and they are great for keeping gardeners company while working. I love the photos of the Spitzhhaubens I have seen, but I have never had the pleasure of meeting one in person.

    Thanks for the welcome,and thank you. At some points the chickens get a bit pesky while "helping", but what can I see I still love em. Spitzhhaubens are very pretty, and they are in my top 10 of my favorite breeds, though they are alittle bit flightly for my taste, I still enjoy them.
