    I have been wanting to get spitzhaubens but i was wondering a few things about them. Do they get along with other chickens is the main question. Also would they do well in confinement? And any other of the basic info would be nice [​IMG]
     
  2. Well I've heard, haven't had them but heard, that they do good in confinement

    Yes they do if they have a coop and run. If you are talking about cages, unless you are hospitalizing them or quarantine them, they will NOT be happy in confinement in cages. It varies from bird to bird.

    I've had one Spitz girl that don't mind a large cage and she did just fine. Just keep in mind how many birds you will have in a cage and how long. They are MUCH happier with a coop and run.
