Simon, my current rooster is ¾ Silver Spangled Appenzeller Spitzhauben x ¼ Silver Laced Polish-Easter Egger. He’s got a spectacular crest, muffs and beard and a funky V-comb. Unfortunately he doesn’t carry a blue egg gene, like his grandfather Thomas.
I hatched him in 2017 and he was the dad for many hatching eggs last season.
He’s neither aggressive or friendly. I’d say he’s more indifferent to me – he tolerates being patted but doesn’t enjoy it. Simon is aware of my presence in the pen but doesn’t come running to see what I’m up to. Best of all he doesn’t crow much.
