Description

The Golden Spangled Spitzhauben, also known as Golden Spangled Appenzeller Spitzhauben chicken, originated in Switzerland and is their national bird. This chicken is very rare in 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 give them their name. Cackle Hatchery® has developed our own breeding stock from the Dick Dickerson seed stock. Traditionally in the States most Spitzhauben 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.

    Love all 5 of them

    I received 5 total chicks-3 hens and 2 roosters! Great healthy chicks!!
    All beautiful in markings and true to the breed. Thanks so much!!

    Friendly birds…

    Cackle Hatcherys Golden Spangled Appenzeller Spitzhauben Chickens are the closest to the breed standard (APA) that we have found. Very friendly, curious birds that love to free range and do well with confinement during the winter months. Highly recommend!

    Gorgeous, sweet rooster

    Received a Golden Spangled cockerel as part of the Rare Breed Special back in May 2019.
    At 3 months, he started crowing. At 6 months old, he has grown out into a beautiful bird, and is very sweet to the hens. He lives in a mixed flock with other roosters, and gets along well with them.
    We are strongly considering ordering several more of these next year!
