About Appenzeller Spitzhauben ChickensAbout Appenzeller Spitzhauben Chickens

Appenzeller Spitzhaubens are the national chicken ofrnSwitzerland. They have a rugged physiology and personality suited to thernmountains from which they came. Although rangy and independent, they canrnprovide 150 medium, orange-yolked, eggs a year.

rnrnAppenzeller Spitzhauben chickens display entertainingrnpersonalities highlighted in their outrageous appearance and heightened byrntheir free-spirited lifestyle. They derive pleasure through their unrelentingrnpursuit of bugs. Long-time owners have nicknamed the breed “Spitz”--a namernwhich captures the spunk of this rangy chicken from the alps. New owners marvelrnat the cleanliness of the Appenzeller Spitzhauben. Their cleanliness may comernfrom the fact that they spend so little time around the coop or from their staturernas a smaller bird in the chicken world.
