hey y'all...from a Texas gal relocated to Kentucky

I am so excited to be receiving my newbies from Skyline!!!  Lots of information to be gleaned from y'all in the very near future.  I am a mom to four gorgeous sons, who just so happen to be lovin' our family's new found fascination with chicks!!  We have two babies that we have hatched thus far: a partridge pendesenca and a speckled sussex.  My oldest son, who is a junior in high school (gulp) is in his fourth year of spanish and is passionate about the language/culture/etc. His recent stay in Costa Rica was life changing.  He loves the Pendesenca aka Sassafras(especially the history of the breed), but was even more thrilled when I finally shared with him this gorgeous breed...the Euskal Oiloa.  I was waiting until I knew we were going to receive our eggs for positive from Mr. Skyline himself!!!!  : ) :cheer:

My son plans on doing a year in Spain to study...I have a feeling we have a true lover of all things related to not only the language and culture...but this spectacular breed!!! 

I look forward to learning from y'all and sharing my adventures as well...God bless y'all!!:cheer:

Re: hey y'all...from a Texas gal relocated to Kentucky

:welcome: :happycrowd" So nice to meet you!  I really hope you enjoy the site.

Sounds like we may have a helper with translations!  Maybe you will visit the home of these friendly birds. 

I have Black Penedesencas and they are not as friendly, but are still gorgeous.  The partridge penny chicks have the coolest Egyptian eyeliner don't they?

Funny you should mention Black Pendesencas...my youngest son who is five.....so wants some of those!!!!!! He is fascinated with the black version of his "Sasseeee- frayyyuuss".  'Sassafras' for folks not born in Dallas then relocated to Kentucky!!:lol:

Re: hey y'all...from a Texas gal relocated to Kentucky

Sassafras is such a cool-sounding word! The Southernmost parts of Ontario have it growing along with Tulip trees too.  To cold up where I live though, 4 hours north of that.

Black Penedesencas grow even faster than EOs and the black are the meat variety of the mostly layer Penedesencas.  Our hens lay huge dark brown eggs too.  They are not as flighty as the partridge because they are so much heavier.

No texastinsel she does not have chickens haven't gotten her to cross over yet, LOL.   She is just starting to get into growing her own food (veggies) so suggested that chickens would be the next step, even though she does not want to eat them she will total enjoy fresh eggs. :thumbsup:  My great niece is a teacher in Lexington she is covering a mat leave until Nov. then on to Nashville, it really is a small world.

Re: hey y'all...from a Texas gal relocated to Kentucky

I think I missed welcoming you texastinsel so :welcome: Its great to have another chicken addicted member! Your son's interest in spanish may be a great asset in communicating about the Spanish breeds as Claire said.

It must be nice not to have to worry about Old Man Winter putting a halt to your hatching down south where you are. Mind you -40 is the only thing that keeps my chicken addiction under control :whistle: I hope your EOs arrive soon so we Canadians can live vivaciously through you for a few months!
