Hamburg
Hamburgs are a delightful breed known in England as the "Dutch Everyday Layers" or sometimes simply "Everlayers." Not only are they a beautiful breed to show, they're prolific layers of smallish white eggs, and they fare very well in cold weather. Hamburgs are flyers and can be difficult to keep confined. They do need to have a good amount of range for grazing, so we don't recommend them if you can't let your flock range freely at least most of the time. On the other hand, they're sprightly, chipper little birds that look festive decorating your yard.
