New Member who may some day have some EO's

Just wanted to say hello from Port Alberni, Vancouver Island. :hi:
New to the chicken world... I have 5 Australorpes and one banty.  Not sure of her roots as I am still learning to identify the different breeds.
I'm looking for friendly hens that lay big eggs and this is what brought me to the EO's.
I have raised parrots since 2000.  It seems only natural that I would find chickens interesting as well. I fact, I think they are a blast.
Always have company when I am doing the gardening.   Gerry

Re: New Member who may some day have some EO's

Hey Welcome Gerry! :welcome:  Good choice,  they do lay a nice big shiny pale brown egg.  My EOs and Black Sumatras are my best gardening buddies.  If you find a worm, they love it!  I think you will enjoy the EOs!  Island girl has some pretty EOs.  I hope you enjoy them when you get them!

Re: New Member who may some day have some EO's

:welcome: To the EO forum - I just got my first EO pullet eggs this week, and I don't know whether to just roll them around and look at them or go ahead and eat them! Decisions!

Welcome from Louisa VA! :US:

I thought you were in Pennsylvania at first glance :lol:

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.
