New blood!!

Hey Chicken Peeps!!

Heidi (aka NatureSpace) invited me over here from BYC. Thanks for the invite! I wanted to let you guys know about something very exciting (at least I think it is!) My boyfriend, Johnny, and I have a new blood line directly from Spain. My boyfriend was born and raised in Madrid, and that is mainly why we got into this breed. Once we saw how friendly and hardy they are we are sold! We got them as eggs and now our little guys are laying their own eggs! We just hatched the second generation and had a great fertility and hatch rate. We are concentrating on sharing this particular bloodline for now, but we will be importing more eggs eventually. I will be getting pictures of the older flock as well as the new chickies this week. I hope you guys are excited as I am to have new blood of this breed! Let's start getting the American Basques closer to the Spanish SOP if possible!

I'm looking forward to meeting you all and thank you so much for having me on your forum!

- Megan

Re: New blood!!

Hi Maggiesdad!! Good to see some familiar faces! I was scared that coming over to this thread was going to be like starting at a new school! Haha

Thank you Gubi!! I'm biased but I think my flock is gorgeous! :-P

Hi Meg!!
Glad you joined us.

Of course we are all super excited about the new blood. It's what we all have been dreaming of for months or years, for some. :excited:

HERE'S A SLIDESHOW: http://s30.photobucket.com/user/Meg2000 … 20Chickens

The black and white chicks are also from Spain. They're called Pita Pintas. Here's a picture of them when they're older:

Re: New blood!!

NatureSpace - We are so happy to have them and are sooo excited to share them with the Basque lovers in the US. I think having new blood will solve the inbreeding problems this breed has had.

Lisa - We have the marraduna variety. I haven't posted any new pics lately on BYC (except the ones I just posted above) but I will work on getting more pictures to you guys! I do have a photobucket account with pictures in them from the time ours were babies until now (almost 1 year old). Is there a way to give you guys access to  my photobucket?

Re: New blood!!

:welcome: Meg. I don't think you will have to do too much educating on EOs in general on this forum, some pretty dedicated folks on here. But we would appreciate a complete education on your new EO bloodlines imports from Spain!!

I have to say those are some very nice looking marraduna EOs in those photos. Do you also have gorria? How many cockerels and pullets do you have of the first generation of the new bloodline? And how old are they in the photos?

Yep definately interested in hearing more!

Re: New blood!!

I did a lot of research into importing directly from Spain into Canada. Turns out not possible to go directly so we would have to take an indirect route probably through France or Germany. The whole procedure was a minefield of problems and issues not to mention the expense attached. I for one am thrilled to hear of new blood lines for this breed as it will further their future here in North America.
Megan I'm sure you can expect many egg orders from our EO owners this side of the country. :happycrowd"

Some of us are driven by the need to make animals a part of our lives. We are soothed by their presence, fascinated by their behavior, and amused by their antics.

Welcome Megan!  :excited:   I am in awe of your lovely birds.  :shock:   WOW!!!!  New blood. That is fantastic! You can't know how exciting that is to hear!  Now, down to business; any chance you could get the NPIP cert. so we could purchase and import some of your lovely EO eggs to :Canada:  ???


All the best,

To tell you the truth, you guys are better experts on the EO's than I am! I just fell in love with this breed due to it's origin, friendliness, hardiness and not to mention eye candy! We do not have the Gorria variety. For now we are sticking with Marraduna but have discussed importing more types. We have 2 cockerels and 5 pullets of the new blood line that are laying (well the girls at least! Ha!) They are 11 months old currently (and 10 months old in the pictures I believe). We have 11 week old chicks that came from their eggs.

Hi! I am looking into NPIP certification for that reason (to ship to Canada!) Paula has already inquired and I promise I'll look into it soon!

Scott had me switch to Picasa Webalbums. I resize them a little and knock the quality back, then upload them to Picasa. 6  - 10 photos in as many seconds. Photobucket used to get hung up and just spin, never do anything. Or try to give me some silly video ad first. I always wound up getting PO'ed, and I'm a pretty even tempered guy!
