Hello!

I just acquired my first dozen EO chicks this week.  I hope to build a small, quality breeding flock over the next few years and am looking forward to getting to know all of you better.  I'm a veterinary practice manager in the Syracuse, NY area.

Re: Hello!

Hello from Winnipeg (rural area where chickens are allowed).  I bought eight 2 week old chicks from the auction in May 2013.  I have 2 pullets and 6 cockerels....isn't that just my luck.  But we are enjoying them.  They are great foragers indeed!  At what age do the cockerels begin to crow?  I'm guessing on average 6 months like other breeds??

Re: Hello!

My last hatch was a bit lopsided too 13 cockerels and 2 hens :banginghead: so don't feel too bad.
They were hatched in Feb andM march and have started crowing already.

By the way :welcome:

Re: Hello!

:welcome: OH!

Enjoy your chicks - they are such alert, active, friendly little babies.

:EO:

Mmmm.. sorry, I've never had an EO wait until he was 6 months old before he started crowing. On the bright side, you can generally tell the genders by about 4 weeks, so you can tell what you are in for later!


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: Hello!

Don't worry, we can't ship you eggs from :Canada: so you only have EO enablers from half the continent to support your habit   :thumbsup:

Re: Hello!

Welcome Over hill, I wouldn't be much help for eggs either, I'm a little far away from you.  Bigger problem is that our 7 are to young to lay.  Hope you enjoy them as much as we are, we think they are great!
