Another Virginian Here!

I'm located in P'town Virginia --- west of Richmond, SE of Charlottesville and NE of Farmville.  Been raising chickens for over a dozen years and just starting to breed my own.    Right now I have around 14 EOs - three roos and eleven hens.   Since I don't have a photobucket account (and don't want one) you'll have to see my guys on the BYC forum or our farm's website/blog....sorry. :hi:  I purchased my EOs from both Skyline (eggs) and Greenfire Farms (day old chicks.)

In addition to my EO chickens I have Seramas in a mix of colors, bearded and showgirl silkies in BBS, white, buff and a silver project.  Another project is Isabelle Ameraucanas (same coloration as Porcelain D'Uccles w/out the mottling.)   I'm also working on four other heritage/rare/hard to find breeds - Black Langshan (Urch), Mottled Houdans, Barred Hollands (Urch) and Cream Legbars (Greenfire Farms.)  French Black Copper Marans and Splahs Marans finish out the breeder flocks.   The layer flock consists of EEs, Speckled Sussex, Delaware, Barred Rocks, a lone BLRW and barnyard mutts covered by El Cid...my Basque Roo. 

Whew!  I think I got everyone.

Looking forward to breeding my guys to the Spanish standard and producing consistent quality w/out losing that Basque character.

:EO:

A great big thank you to all of those who have already translated the standard and done a lot of research already.

Re: Another Virginian Here!

:welcome: Lainfcroft! We seem to have a strong membership from Virgina and are always glad to have another member! When you get a chance it would be much appreciated if you could add your location to your profile (under personal). I think you can also post your Farm's website or put the address in a signature line if you wanted to...I have a desire to visit your website and see all your beautiful sounding chickens!  I am envious of your cream legbar in particular, I would love to have some.

Re: Another Virginian Here!

Welcome and thanks for sending the pictures.  Alway great to see the birds around the country.  Glad that you are also considering their character, as to whether or not it is Basque,  I don't know :-)   But, it is good to keep their disposition in mind when breeding--as important as any other characteristic.  I love our birds and they are sometimes so funny to be around.  Here is a picture of my husband taking a coffee break.   The dogs and chickens always follow us around when we're out doing chores. The dogs can be helpful..........the chickens not so much :-)

Of course, when we have company for an outside dinner then the chickens have to get put away so there is a down side to their boldness :-)

Flat Rock Farm...is that a cheval canadienne in your avatar?   Love that breed.  We had a mare purchased as a 4month old back in 2001.  She lives in Georgia (USA) now.

Hi Laingcroft, no he is a Fersian.  I just love them, he is not mine but if I was every to get a horse :whistle:  Witteveen Farms in Paris, ON breed them which is about 20 minutes from my home.  They have a park bench at the side of the road where you can park and watch them in the pasture.....beautiful :love:

Didn't see his hocks to see feathering.  If you like that look in a horse and haven't already seen them, you really should check out your "native" breed :Canada:  These boys will make you want one LOL
