The Silver Spangled Hamburg is a Dutch breed and not of German origin. The spangled variety was evolved in England and admitted into the American Standard of Perfection in 1874. Our Silver Spangled Hamburgs are a combination of beauty and utility. These birds with symmetrical body, graceful carriage and attractive color have made them a very popular exhibition variety. Notable features: large rose comb and large round white ear lobes. They are very active, good flyers and do not do well in confinement.
