Good morning from Oregon!

Hi everyone! Thought I'd quickly introduce myself. I'm located in the Columbia River Gorge in northern Oregon, and I just purchased four (three pullets and a cockerel) Euskal Oiloas at a poultry show in Washington last Saturday. I'm greatly enjoying the temperament and foraging abilities of the breed so far, they're a lovely addition to the flock. Aside from the newly-acquired Euskals, I've been working with some other neat breeds over the past few years, especially chanteclers and shetland geese. I intend to stay active on the forums, it looks like a friendly and helpful place thus far!

Re: Good morning from Oregon!

Welcome Czango! Very glad to have you join us!

I would be interested to know the background behind your birds, did the seller let you know much about their history? Would love to see pictures as well!

There is certainly a lot of good info in this forum and we look forward to having you join in future discussions!

Re: Good morning from Oregon!

Hey everyone,
Thanks for the warm welcome! I'll have to upload some photos when it finishes raining here and I have my camera on hand. To answer Poplar, the seller did give me some background, and since then I've done some further research into the breed. I believe she's on the forums, but not sure as to her name on the site. If I remember correctly, the birds are the offspring of some from a line in California, not sure of the breeder's name there. I'll get some pictures up this week!

Re: Good morning from Oregon!

Hello all,
I finally got around to taking some photos! They aren't the greatest, but I think they'll work for a rough idea! I just moved them out of the quarantine pen today, and I took these while walking them to their new spot, so you can see they're rather interested in the dead tomato vines and whatnot. There are a few discrepancies in plumage and leg color between the hens, but their temperament is lovely and it's an exciting start to this breed for me. Happy holidays everyone!

Re: Good morning from Oregon!

:jumping: Looks like you have a great start there Czango.  At least all the pullets seems to be somewhat uniform in colour, the cockerel is looking great so far.  He will change a bit as he matures and other than the incorrect leg colour in them I think you have an awesome quad :thumbsup:

Thanks so much for posting pictures!!

Re: Good morning from Oregon!

Thanks everyone! Mostly talking about the black on the tail coverts as far as the differences between pullets go, which I believe is correct, but I'm not too concerned regardless! I'm exceedingly happy with them so far, the friendliest chickens I've had for quite a while. As far as the leg color goes, two of them are yellow and two of them are more slate-like. They're all friendly and active foragers, which is what I look for in a chicken. :D

Re: Good morning from Oregon!

Where there chickens in those photos? All I saw was green grass...oh wait I see the lovely quad of EOs now :whistle:

Just joking. I agree with Lisa and FRF, you have a nice group there. Definitely worth hatching some offspring from and seeing what you get. The slate legs are something to select against but really in the grand scheme not so hard to correct. They do look pretty good otherwise, and it's good to hear they have that trademark EO personality :thumbsup:
