Re: Hello from Waterloo Ontario

Funny you should mention getting more Bessie, now we are staying I am hoping to hatch some!  :doI?:  If you want eggs they are yours, but I know it is late and next year is good too, there's so many more people with them now and I am so glad they are being enjoyed.  :jumping:  Thanks for the congrats, I am so happy people are enjoying the site. :thumbsup:

Re: Hello from Waterloo Ontario

I will get some eggs from you in the spring.  I'm done hatching for this year and things around here are not as good as they should be.  I'll work on getting everybody healthy and strong again.  By next spring things should be better.

Re: Hello from Waterloo Ontario

:welcome: so very happy to have you join! The atmosphere has been grand and it is so exciting to have another member! It would be great to see picture of your EOs and other birds when you have the chance. SLF's birds must have broken records as to how many offspring they have produced!

She is probably responsible for more than half of all the EO's in Canada.  (I would guess)

Re: Hello from Waterloo Ontario

Hey Bessie!

Lovely to see you here! :jumping: Gotta warn you though - this site will tempt you greatly to increase your euskie flock! But it's kinda fun having a huge vicarious flock because everybody is posting their beautiful pictures. The variations are fun to see, and so is the help as we all try to figure out what these birds are supposed to look like! Join the party....:lol:

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.
