The Silver Spangled Hamburg is a dual-purpose chicken breed, known for its graceful carriage and attractive coloring. Originally from the Netherlands, these birds were admitted into the American Standard of Perfection in 1874. They are active, good flyers, and excel in exhibitions, but do not do well in confinement. With a large rose comb and round white ear lobes, these birds are a combination of beauty and utility. They lay 200+ medium white eggs per year and have a docile temperament. Roosters generally weigh 5lbs, while hens weigh 4lbs. The Silver Spangled Hamburg is recognized by the APA and shown in the Continental Class. They can occasionally go broody.
