The Appenzeller Spithauben is the national breed of Switzerland, noted for its very unusual forward-pointing crest and v-shaped comb. These birds are well-adapted to life in the mountains, are excellent climbers and love to roost in trees. They really don't do well in confinement, so don't keep them unless they can be allowed to roam freely throughout the day.
