    Does any one know what gender and breed this chicken is? I bought as a "top hat" polish hen. I have been told it in not polish but maybe Spitzhauben? Can anybody help me?????

    Your bird is not a Polish; it is an Appenzeller Spitzhauben. Also, unlike what you were told, it is a rooster, not a hen. He's very pretty!

    Thanks.... But dang I have too many roosters!!!! Being new to chickens I have been suckered into the " I am selling off a few hens because I have too many". Ugh! I do love him but I suspected he was a rooster when he and my Easter Egger rooster starting fighting all the time.

    From what I read they are quite rare. That is why I wasn't sure if she (now known to be a he) was one.

    Well, he should be easy to place.
