Re: Hatchaholism?

Oh love the picture of Rosie with her babes :love:

PG I raised spitz with my EO's and I have found the same, they are quite friendly and not as flighty as the breed implies.  I think the EO's rub off on them and their calm temperaments :huh:

Re: Hatchaholism?

looking great especially the broodie's chicks.

The Spitz rooster I had last year was very calm so his temperament is breeding through, but I'm sure the EO influence on the chicks has something to do with it too.  I find my Spitz hens are very friendly and curious, similar to the EO hens just not as extreme but the boys are usually skittish.

Re: Hatchaholism?

My adult spitz are pretty friendly gubi, being in a smaller pen at eye level seems to do that to chickens though. The hens are very pushy for treats but hate to be picked up. Faraday the rooster is pretty calm and best of all certainly not agressive so far. All the chicks until these though have been rather skittish, at least a couple of these so far seem very calm and brave around me, I guess I'll see if it lasts.

Doesn't Rose have the look of stressed out momma to her? She's so funny trying to manage those five little ones and seems to be a great mom.

Every year I am surprised by how friendly EO chicks are, even after having them for a number of year. They really do love people. Some of my little d'uccles love people too but it's not quite so extreme.

Re: Hatchaholism?

The spitz hatched with the EOs are alarmingly friendly, not sure what's up with that.

Proximity to shameless flirts? The EO attitude is contagious.

I don't have spitz, but have found this to be true with other breeds.. :EO:
