Gyroptychius,

thank you for your spot on post.
As a newby to Poultry this is exactly what I was looking for but couldn't really find somewhere else.
Great job! Keep going, mate.

Best regards from QLD's Sunny Coast

James!

Thankyou for that valuable snippet of information from Battye's books! I look forward to being in contact with you in the future. Love those Gold and Silver Pencilleds'!

Gyroptychius I loved the phtos of the pendilled hamburgs you put up. I saw in the profile the neck hackles should be free of pencilling. Both varieties you show had this pencilling so I am asking are you actively trying to eliminate this and how are you doing it if so.

I have silver and gold. Two pairs of silver have completely different neck hackles. Same for the two varieties of gold I have. One is beautifully golden at the neck. The other larger line has penciling like yours on the neck.

I might like to order some of your pencilled in spring if you can spare any as third lines of each?

Jon

Hi Jon,

Us Hamburg supporters really do need to start an Enthusiast Club back up again. I'm keen to be in contact with other Hamburg breeders out there to support and share bloodlines with one another, share photos and have general chats!
What do you all think???! :grouphug:

Jo

Hi All...I know this is an old posting but being new to the board only now got to read it. I have both Gold and silver spangled hamburgs and so reading standards and such is what I have been looking to do. I would very much like to get into improving what I have to the standard level and help try and preserve these lovely birds.

I will put up a new topic and post some pics and I hope I will get feed back and contructive critiques on them...I will, I promise take it on board and will not get upset about it, I was given the main birds and now I have bred and grown some young birds, again let me know if I am doing it all backwards etc...lol

I would LOVE to meet up (internet) with any other hamburg breeders so we can work together with improving the bloodlines, thanks and it was great reading, I loved it immensely.

Speks
Siver & Gold Hamburgs, DB Plymouths and 1 longely Belgian dUCLLE roo

I think my rooster is a hamburg, but he's crossed with something (i think) due to the fluffy feet.
Any ideas?

He's mated with the leghorns, so we'll be getting some leghorn/hamburg cross's soon

For those who may be interested, the current issue of Australasian Poultry Vol25(1) Apr/May 2014 features Hamburghs and has one as its cover photo for the article Hamburgs on a Roll by Megg Miller. There is another article by Cheryl McDonnell titled: Hardy Hamburgs.
