Hamburg Chickens

Thursday, April 4, 2013 @ 10:04 AM Karen Hood

The Hamburg is a breed of chicken developed in Germany and Holland prior to 1700. It is comparatively rare, with fewer than 1000 registered in North America each year. It is a small breed: cocks tend to weigh only 5 pounds and hens about 4 lb, with slender legs and a neat rose comb. The bird comes in more than ten different varieties, including: Silver Spangled, Golden Spangled, Golden Penciled, Citrone Penciled, Silver Penciled, White, Black. Hamburgs are hardy, active birds who are capable of flight and are considered good egg producers. The Hamburg chicken is just one of the many rare and beautiful birds you can see at Spokane’s premiere Petting Farm, brought to you by Mountain Valley View Farm. We have them in both the lovely Golden Penciled and Silver Spangled varieties.
