Raising Chickens 101 - Chicks, Breeds, Coops, Tips
I miss my girls....Appenzellar Spitzhauben pullet. Very rare in N. America.They are mostly a show breed, but are okay white egg layers. It is a light chicken, with hens weighing an average of 3.5 lbs. Behaviorally, it is a flighty breed that doesn't do well in confinement, can forage well, and will roost in trees if given the opportunity.
