The Appenzeller Spitzhauben is a rare breed to the United States. This is a very cold hardy breed with a great personality. We are very lucky to have both the rare Golden Spangled, and the very rare Chamois Spangled! I believe at this time that we are one of two breeders in the United States to have the Chamois.
These birds are very good at foraging and are one of the most intelligent chickens we have ever raised. They are absolutely beautiful!
They lay pure white large eggs. Colors are pure. We put the birds together from Dec. through Feb. for warmth when pictures were taken.
(The beautiful Silver Spangled Roo in the pictures was a free ranger staying with the Gold & Chamois Spangled for the winter. (He's waiting for his own girls lol)
