Re: First Hatch of 2012

Greenfire's line also originated from Canada (so they imported from Canada I guess).

Enjoy the weather in Florida Flat Rock Farm! I should post pictures of the weather here....we have about 5 inches of fresh snow so far today and it is still coming down :cozy: spring snow though as it is 2*C.

Thanks Claire,  Mark said that it snowed late on the day I left and that Sat. morning there was snow on the ground but melted quickly.  Glad I missed it :thumbs:

Re: First Hatch of 2012

We just had a little where the lawn looked icing sugared in the low spots!  This morning  we have a majorly beautiful white-over frost and our valleys are filled with mist while the sun lights our house up on the hill.  We get mist and fog in the valleys most of the summer, it's a sign spring well on the way.  :jumping:

Re: First Hatch of 2012

Appway, when I emailed greenfire about their EOs, the response I got was as follows: "Yes Canada" end of message. Lots of great customer service and personality over there. :shock:

Glad to hear Canadians retire in Florida too. ;)

Re: First Hatch of 2012

Wow NS they certainly go out of their way to make potential customers feel welcome don't they? I love Florida especially the Florida Keys. We used to go to Key Largo a lot before we got critters to keep us tied to the land :whistle:

Re: First Hatch of 2012

:shock: NS that is not great customer service, you think they could have said a little more like thank you for inquiring......  Yes lots of Canadian retire in Florida.  My step father was American so my Mum is a dually and lives down here full time, comes home once a year for a month to visit.  I am just enjoying no cooking, no chores, no cleaning, no work............ :happycrowd"

Re: First Hatch of 2012

Well one of my "tiny purple chicks" died today :sad:.  Not sure why, I know I helped one of them out and this may very well was the one.  Six weeks old :huh:

Re: First Hatch of 2012

ah Gee Paula I'm so sorry. they are every bit as precious as our EO's. It is always such a shame to lose one especially when you hatched it :hug:

Re: First Hatch of 2012

Really strange thing is I moved them to a different brooder box today as they are quite small and the EO's are getting very big :shock:  I noticed when I picked her  up she was very quiet and was still quiet when I checked on her before I went out this afternoon, came home and she was dead.  It's funny she just looked like she was sleeping, sometimes when the die they get that outstretched leg, very strange.  The other two look fine and the sizzle and bantam BLRW are in there as well.

Well I picked up 8 tiny purple chicks from Performance today, boy are they darn cute.  Will post pictures later.

Poor baby :sad:

Very strange to me one that age would die.

Re: First Hatch of 2012

Thinking back to this morning the reason I took them out was one of the EO's had pecked one of the D'uccles and it really cried out, that's what made me decide it was time for the bantams to be in another spot.  I wonder if she got pecked so hard in the head that it killed her??  Is that possible???

:congrats: Wow Paula, well done! Awesome chickies!  Please take lots more :pics: and enjoy the beautiful :chickout:  I love how everyone sends such great vibes to support the new chick parents!

I am very sorry to hear about the little D'Uccle.  Do EOs really peck that hard?  Very sad to see a precious life leave.

Lynn, I think your bunch are next?

Re: First Hatch of 2012

My 21 are due to hatch on Monday but knowing the EO's I think maybe some will pip earlier. Of the 21 I have 6 that are a bit suspect so If I'm really lucky I may get 15. But I won't count my chcikens before they're hatched.
Congratulations on the great hatch Paula :chickout:

Re: First Hatch of 2012

Oh shame about your little purple chicken Paula.  :hug:  It is possible but unlikely I'd say on the peck.  I have always found them not quite as vigorous as they could be, maybe something wasn't quite right in the first place.  That is a funny age though, makes you wonder.

Re: First Hatch of 2012

Paula,

So sorry to hear about the TPC!  :hug:

But hopefully the new ones from PP will help you to feel better.


When all else fails, go spend time with your chickens. :)

Pens are currently filled with Red Cuckoo (Marraduna) and Red Basque (Gorria) breeders, Spitz, and Seramas.

Re: First Hatch of 2012

Do the ones from Performance look any different or act differently? Just curious ;) Also so sorry about your TPC they are so sweet, it would be hard to loose one! I love the ones I hatched from Claire, I am even thinking of housing them completely separately from the EOs, building a separate coop for them maybe :whistle: if I start now it will be ready for them when they need it for outside. Hmmm, I appear to be hooked on them now as well as the EOs, you enablers you :funny:

Re: First Hatch of 2012

I love it, I'm sure it will confuse some but it makes perfect sense to me that
TPC = tiny purple chicken = lavender d'uccle = self blue bearded Belgian d'uccle
How's that for abbreviations, acronyms and common names for ya ;)

Monika I think my TPCs and black d'uccles are getting their own coop this winter! Since we are building a barn where the larger chooks can go I am planning to use the current straw bale coop for them...imagine how many I will be able to fit =D
Now if only they would lay some eggs :oops:

Re: First Hatch of 2012

Well IG I don't think they act differently as ours all originated from PP anyway.  Well sad to say I lost TPC # 2, got home from work and a second one was dead.  Saw some bloody poops so am treating them all for cocci :stomp:
