In addition to the great German sperber, there has also been the German sperber bantam since the 1960s. This is thanks to breeders Heinrich Rehme (Osnabrück) and Paul Adam (Mülheim / Ruhr). They chose a black German bantam and a German sperber rooster as their starting animal. In 1968 the German Sperber Bantam was exhibited for the first time in public, but it did not receive good ratings due to its size, which was above the norm for the Bantam Sperber. In 1974, breeders were first rated very well at national shows. As a result, the Federal Breeding Committee recognized the German sperm bantam as a breed that same year.
