newbie!

Hello fellow chicken chicken lovers, eh?  My name is Trish.  I live in Saskatchewan Canada with my amazing husband of 11 years and our three children DS almost 10, DS 8 and DD almost 6.  We are grain farmers, and just beginning the homesteading journey.  We homeschool our human brood, and have just brought home 25 easter eggers. We are in the process of aquiring some EO's.  We hope to add some pigs this year too.  I look forward to getting to know you, and learning about this awesome breed!

Re: newbie!

:Canada: Hello and Welcome from Ontario. I have family that live in Codette Sask and I love the landscape of the praires. I know you will enjoy this forum and the wonderful people who make up our EO family. I have always wanted to have a bit of land to call my own and raise a few chickens. It started out a few chickens but didn't stay a few for long. I am a Grandmother of three wonderful Grandsons who enjoy coming to visit.
Anyway Thanks for joining us and hopefully you will rnjoy this forum as much as I do.:thumbs:


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: from Northern Alberta but I was born, raised and educated in Saskatchewan!
What area do you call home? and isn't there a lot of enjoyment in owning a piece of land and having some animals to share it with!

Re: newbie!

Welcome Prairiedawns, I am so glad you found out about Euskal oiloas and joined us here!  You will love the when you get them!  Easter eggers are cool too, but I bet the EO roos like cuddling more than the EEs!  I have had chickens 5 years on our hobby farm, and "tried" the Euskals and lots of other breeds 4 years ago and a few since.  There are many great chicken breeds with many strengths and qualities, and the EOs truly are keepers.

It sounds like you are embarking on an exciting journey.  :congrats:  We have a homesteading section here too as many of us are like minded, wanting to do things more self sufficiently for the sheer enjoyment and satisfaction of it!  Enjoy the site, ask if you need anything.

Re: newbie!

Thanks everyone!  We live on a farm near Kinistino, which is a 45min drive Southeast of Prince Albert.  We are going to get some eo's from Claire and I am VERY excited.  I just love my chicks, our easter eggers are going to be very pretty, but most of them are very shy.  We will likely have 5 blue ones, but I guess we'll see.  I do so look forward to having chickens follow me around and sit on my lap...maybe I will have to round up some of our farm yard story books to read to them...:chook:

Re: newbie!

:welcome: We have three EO fluff balls.  I set down my hand and they come for a snuggle!  When we aren't  beside the bator interacting with us they stare up lovingly.  I worry they will get kinks in their wee necks!  You will really appreaciate the warm and support of the folks on this forum.  EOs and EO folk are better than therapy :EO:


All the best,

Kiah and Micah
