German Spitzhauben Chicken Breed Information and Chicken Facts


German Spitzhauben Chicken Breed Information:

The Silver Spangled Spitzhauben chicken also known as Appenzeller Spitzhauben (pointed hood) chicken, originated in Switzerland and is their national bird.  This chicken is very rare to the United States and not yet admitted to the American Standard of Perfection.  Noted characteristics are cavernous nostrils, horn type comb and mid size forward-pointing head crest which gives them their name. Cackle Hatchery imported 3 breeding roosters of the Appenzeller Silver Spangle Spitzhaubens in 2013 to improve and work on our breeding program. Traditionally in the states most Spitzhaubens have the crest going backward and too much of a crest. Cackle Hatchery would like to be instrumental in correcting this breeding issue with our own flock and hope others follow. We do not offer for sale the Brabanter Chicken breed which has a beard.  Spitzhauben chickens are a good free range chicken and do not do well confined. They are active, alert and like to roost in trees. Check out the chicken forum or chicken blog for other breeding information on the Spitzhauben chicken. Cackle Hatchery offers the Spitzhauben chicken for sale cheap as baby chicks (cheep, cheep).
