Spitzhaubens

The Appenzeller Spitzhauben originates from Switzerland.  These beautiful,  unique birds are noted for their forward pointing Mohawk and Dalmation spots.  They are truly a gem in any flock for their sticking appearance.

These birds are light but lay a full sized egg and are highly productive.  These are very self-sufficient birds, being very successful free rangers.  They fly well and keep themselves out of danger.  They are active and fun to watch.  

We hatch chicks from a flock of Silver Spangled Spitzhauben, maintained by our good friend Jeremy in nearby Pilot, VA.  The parent stock is from Green Fire Farms.
