Hello fellow EO enthusiasts

Hello, my name is Beth. I am located near Paisley, Ontario in Bruce County. I have 3 marradunna basques, hatched from eggs purchased from Claire. One grayish hen, one light rooster and one dark rooster. Of course I couldn't have hatched out one roo and two hens! I think they are beautiful birds (even if not quite up to the standard of the breed) and I love their personalities. I am hoping to add one or two hens to my flock. I also have some lavender orpingtons and ameraucanas (also purchased from Claire) and some easter eggers, d'ccles and sabelpoots. The EO roos were a great help in training our lab not to chase the chickens...they certainly have no fear of her! Now all the chickens can roam free on the farm without fear of being harassed by an overly friendly dog. I look forward to learning more about EOs and meeting other enthusiasts of the breed.

Re: Hello fellow EO enthusiasts

Hi Beth, :welcome: Great to see you here!  I think I have one or two browner pullets for you, I think their legs will have more green than is ideal but you are welcome to them.  Lindy Lou can have 2 as well.  I think they are about 6 week old now.  Looks like I am going to have a few partridge chanteclers available too.

Re: Hello fellow EO enthusiasts

Thanks to everyone for your nice welcomes. I will try to get some pictures of my 3 on here one of these days...I am not very good with computers.

Claire, I will get in touch with you to arrange a time to get those pullets, I'm sure my hubby won't mind one or two more.

Re: Hello fellow EO enthusiasts

Claire, thanks again for the new girls, they are still doing well, I am looking forward to watching them grow as these EOs tend to do! My roos have gotten HUGE, I forgot how small they once were:)

Re: Hello fellow EO enthusiasts

I am glad Honey and Bunny are doing well, getting tamer every day I bet!  Maggiesdad they will be worth the wait, and will spoil you for all others.  Beth got her first EOs this spring and was not planning on them til she saw them all leaning up against their run trying to get to us while we had our backs to them and were talking about the Blue Laced Red Wyandottes in front of us that were ignoring us. ;)
