With its distinctive cavernous nostrils, horn-type comb, and mid-size, forward-pointing head crest, the Silver Spangled Spitzhauben is a truly unique chicken.
Despite its rarity in the United States, our breeding farmers have dedicated themselves to improving and refining the breed through their own breeding program. With the goal of correcting the issue of backward-pointing crests and excessive cresting that is often found in this breed.
In addition to their ornamental value, Silver Spitzhauben Chickens are also excellent egg producers. They lay a generous 220-280 small to medium white eggs per year. They are a bit flighty by nature, but make great pets and are well-suited for exhibition. With roosters weighing in at around 5lbs and hens at 4lbs, these chickens are a medium-sized breed. They can occasionally go broody and are not recognized by the American Poultry Association.
