Augsburger Chickens are an extremely rare breed from Bavaria that had a population of under 150 total birds on the planet just a few years ago. Our variety is black with a greenish sheen throughout. This is an older breed that originated near the city of Augsburg Germany around 1880. The two main ingredients are the French La Fleche and Italian Lamotte breeds.
The most striking feature of this breed has to be the almost buttercup comb. A proper Augsburger comb should split into two “single” combs after the first couple of points. This results in what appears to be a cup comb. To be proper there must be two separate blades that come together in the rear. Note that typically only 25% of pure Augsburgers display the double comb trait. We cannot guarantee that the chicks we ship will grow the double comb, however they will carry the genes to produce double comb chicks in subsequent generations. Our Augsburger breeders came directly from the original importers to the US Greenfire Farms. We were the first farm to acquire them from Greenfire and have one of just a few established flocks in the US.
