RareBreedAuctions.com is dedicated to preserving America’s rare and heritage breeds of poultry and livestock. We believe that the best way to save these breeds is to create a market for these animals where buyers and sellers can meet and bargain in a fair and professional environment facilitated by state-of-the-art technology. RareBreedAuctions.com is committed to providing that opportunity to you, the buyer or seller of rare breeds.

Other auction sites created by livestock experts have failed the test of time due to a lack of technical proficiency and poor customer service. At RareBreedAuctions.com, we specialize in raising livestock, but we also make our living in developing and maintaining customer relationships through online communication.

We are committed to building a strong and ethical community that allows members to sell and bid with confidence. We pledge to be responsive, helpful and friendly to our members and guests, and we encourage you to tell us about your experiences so that we can continuously improve our service.

We welcome you to our community and look forward to meeting your needs.

20+ Appenzeller Spitzhauben Chicks

(comes with free surprise seeds)

This auction is for 20+ Appenzeller Spitzhauben chicks from Spring Creek Heritage Farms. We specialize in poultry, seeds, as well as numerous old varieties of fruit trees. The auction winner will also receive free surprise seeds to be shipped with the chicks.

We are focused on the breeds that we raise. The Appenzeller Spitzhauben chicks come from breeding stock that has been selected from large preservation flocks of birds. Our goal is to provide our customers with unique as well as hardy breeds of poultry. We maintain a larger pool of birds than most to slow inbreeding depression. Here is an opportunity to raise a pastoral rare breed of chicken that will thrive and be an asset to your farm and fun entertainment for your family.

Spitzhaubens are known for their great free range instincts. We find them much easier on the garden than our larger breeds of poultry. They lay a wonderful chalky white egg and are known for their cleanliness. Our lines were imported from Europe and from our own farm’s most recent import from Canada added hardiness to the breed. These are 100% Spitzhauben, although not all will have forward crest, but they are beautiful just the same.

Spitzhaubens are a great choice for free range and backyard chickens. They are skilled at avoiding predators. In their first year, they lay a smallish egg, by the second year the egg almost seems to double in size. Our focus has been primarily to breed for new colors that we find interesting. We will continue toward the breed standard. Once you try these birds we are sure that you will want to have more! Current breeding pens are mixed but allows for some silver spangled and some goldens as well as other interesting colors. Possible blue, white, chamois, and others.

This auction is subject to our terms and conditions found on our website. Shipping and handling cost is $40.00. Shipping is only available within the Continental USA.

We practice biosecurity to provide our customers with healthy and happy birds. We do not have visitors to the farm. Unfortunately, shoes and vehicle tires are a pathway for contamination. We have worked extremely hard and value our flocks as part of our extended family. We raise hundreds of birds on pasture per year and select breeders from those flocks. Our grandparent breeders are housed under cover to provide a bio secure setting to ensure that the health and genetics are not lost. They are situated in a spacious barn with multiple wood paneled stalls that have been retrofitted for natural light and fresh air. Our farm is tested bi-annually with the National Poultry Improvement Program.

Please pay at auction end so we can ship right away. You can send us a message if you have any questions.

Happy Bidding!
