Silver Spangled Hamburg

Silver Spangled Hamburgs are seasonal layers of small-medium white eggs. Very intelligent and quiet. They prefer to be allowed to roam freely. Aggressive foragers. One of the best tick eating breeds. Long lived. Smaller, light body size. Less winter unhardy than most chickens due to low their profile comb and tightly fitting feathers.

Goose

Embden goslings, unsexed, available in late April. The heritage Embden is one of the most easy-going of all goose breeds, and is therefore more family-friendly. They are also a good choice for egg production; and, for those who enjoy roast goose, they are among the most meaty and early-maturing. Very cold-hardy. Limited availability!

2 GROWN GANDERS ARE STILL AVAILABLE: We also have 2 mature Embden ganders (males).  They are among the calmer sort, and these boys are used to people.  Regularly $73, now on sale for $45.

They seem to have originated in the Nile delta, where there is a city named Fayoum.
