Description

Chamois Spangled Appenzeller Spitzhauben

The Chamois Spangled Appenzeller Spitzhauben comes from the Appenzell region of Switzerland. It has golden-buff plumage with white spangles, a slate gray beak and shanks, and a V comb, It also sports a crest with forward-facing feathers, from which it derives its name. A spitzhauben is a pointed lady’s bonnet traditionally worn in Appenzell.

Spitzhaubens tend to be a bit more talkative than other chicken breeds. They are also active and alert, and fly well. They are exceptional foragers that like to spend time exploring the outdoors. This breed is truly an all-climate chicken that is winter hardy and also does well in warm, humid weather.

Spitzhauben hens start laying at about 5 months of age. They are one of the few chickens that naturally lay eggs during winter months. The hens may or may not brood, but when they do they make excellent mothers.

At Cackle Hatchery® we have been developing our strain of Chamois Spangled Appenzeller Spitzhaubens since 2021 and hope to offer chicks for sale by 2023. Meanwhile you might like our Silver Spangled Appenzeller Spitzhaubens or our Golden Spangled Appenzeller Spitzhaubens.
