Hello from Southern Ontario

Thanks Claire for sending me the info on this site.  I currently have a flock of three roosters and seven hens, thanks to Claire. I absolutely love this breed they are beautiful to look at not to mention their friendly personality.  I am currently known on ACE and PSO as Wycrazy, but with this new site I figured what the heck new username.  Look forward to some good information and conversation on this new site, the breed deserves it! :applause:

Re: Hello from Southern Ontario

Flat Rock Farm, very nice Paula!  I am so glad you have joined us,  I know how you like these birds.  Everyone else seems to be crazy over them too!  James at Skyline Poultry, Tennessee has some of these now and is getting people in the US excited for these.  He will ship his first hatching eggs coming up soon and has got a hatching egg list going, so a whole new era in the US is coming :cheer:

Check out this thread on BYC, warning it's long! ;)

Re: Hello from Southern Ontario

Thank you all for the warm welcome, well Claire considering our small farms sits on a huge shelf of flat rock I thought it was fitting, LOL.  Sorry poplar girl I just updated my profile location still struggling with my avatar upload.

You should have seen me attempting to set my avatar up using an iPad :banginghead: needless to say I never did figure it out, fired up the old laptop instead.

Well as you can see I got the avatar loaded.  Claire had forwarded me a shrink avatar link awhile ago, took me a few tries but I got it!  =D

Re: Hello from Southern Ontario

Welcome to another site to spend lots of time on!  I'm still struggling with the avatar too.   I tried last night but it was too big so I'll give it another shot tonight.

Re: Hello from Southern Ontario

That's what i did but i selected too large of a format.  I'll figure it out tonight. How many pixels did you set it for?

Re: Hello from Southern Ontario

You should be able to do 120 pixels square, but if the picture you are taking from is too huge it may bog right down.   I have started resizing my huge files in Paint

1) Open the pic it up in paint
2) Top left menu, Resize to like 70% or so  (so it's under 1 Meg)
3) Then save and at the bottom will tell you the new file size.  If still too big resize again and save again. 

Seems like some online hosts and programs choke when it;s over 1MB

You got it gubi, your welcome!  Your boy is nicer looking, mine is only 5 months old just starting to feather in nicely.

Re: Hello from Southern Ontario

I resize my pictures with windows live photo gallery,  It's a good program for cropping, resizing and other touch ups but when i went to resize it to the size need for an avatar it just came up as a few different coloured blotches.  So i did the shrink avatar as to your link and I selected 200 pixels and it was too large at 12.4 but I got down to a small enough size now.  I really should be finishing my chicken tractor,  I was kind-of planing on coming up to pick one up but i do hate driving and it would be just too tight of a time span to make it up and back again between chores.  It won't look near as good as yours that's for sure but hopefully it will keep my chicks save.  I have all kinds boards and old siding in my barn to use up to make one.
