The Silver Spangled Spitzhauben (also known as Appenzeller Spitzhauben chicken) originated in Switzerland and is their national bird. In the United States it’s a very rare chicken breed and not yet admitted to the American Standard of Perfection. Noted characteristics are cavernous nostrils, horn type comb and mid size forward-pointing head crest which give them their name. They’re very active and like to roost on trees. Perfect for free range, this sweet and gentle chicken will make a truly unique addition to any flock!
