Hello from Alberta.

Thank you to Popular Girl, who encouraged me to join this group. 

I am so new to this breed but want to continue to learn all I can about them. 
As well work on them to gain recognition and help develop a SOP.

Today, I am just going to concentrate how you can tell the difference between feathering and working on size. 

I would like to personally thank Popular Girl for her patience with all my questions and the glazed look that covers my eyes when she patiently explained.

Re: Hello from Alberta.

:welcome: la-chicken! I am so happy you have joined us :excited: It's wonderful to have another person from Alberta especially one willing to work on standardizing the breed and attend shows :thumbsup:. I was getting lonely :oops:

And as I assured you before your glazed look is nothing compared to that of the poor unfortunate non-chicken crazy or non EO enamoured people who make the mistake of asking me about chickens :chook: :shock: :nervous: :funny:

Re: Hello from Alberta.

:thumbs: I have had a lot of breeds for a lot of years and I just tallied all mine up for figuring out who goes I what housing for the winter and I have more Eos now than I ever had for winter, 37.  I have 10 or so young roos to go, but the increase in numbers is because the EOs seem to last well, I have 2 that will be 6 in April!  :net:

Re: Hello from Alberta.

Welcome!  I live in Ontario too!  I am fortunate to have to breeding groups, an Alberta line mixed with an Ontario line and my up and coming best of the lot, carefully selected from our wopper groups of chicks.

Looking forward to talking EO with you


All the best,

Kiah and Micah
