Valley Hatchery invites you to experience the allure of the Silver Spitzhauben chicken, a rare and striking breed that’s a Swiss national treasure. But here’s a fun fact: its real full name is the Silver Spangled Appenzeller Spitzhauben, named after the picturesque Appenzell region in Switzerland. Known for its distinct features like cavernous nostrils, a unique horn-type comb, and a mid-size, forward-pointing head crest, this breed is more than just a chicken—it’s a conversation starter!

Our dedicated breeders at Valley Hatchery have been working tirelessly to enhance the breed’s distinct qualities, particularly focusing on overcoming the challenges of backward-pointing crests and excessive cresting. We’re committed to bringing you the best of this Swiss marvel.

But the Silver Spangled Appenzeller Spitzhauben isn’t all about looks. These chickens are also proficient egg layers, producing a generous 220-280 small to medium white eggs per year. Although they have a somewhat flighty nature, they make excellent pets and are perfect for exhibitions. These medium-sized birds, with roosters weighing around 5lbs and hens at 4lbs, bring the right balance of size and personality to any flock.

While not officially recognized by the American Poultry Association, their occasional broodiness and distinct appearance make them a valuable and unique addition to any backyard flock. Embrace the opportunity to own a piece of Swiss elegance with the Silver Spangled Appenzeller Spitzhauben from Valley Hatchery. It’s not just a chicken; it’s a statement of style and rarity in your backyard!
