Hello from Red Deer Alberta

Hello, I don't have  any Euskal Oiloa yet, in fact I am not sure yet how to pronounce it correctly , but I have seen and heard enough about them  to know that I would like to add some to my flock.
My breeds so far are speckled sussex, faverolles, and partridge chanteclers, and an odd assortment of eye candy in my laying flock.
I look forward to learning more about this beautiful breed from all of you.
Nice to see a few familar names here as well.

Re: Hello from Red Deer Alberta

Hello & welcome, I'm sure you will love EO's as much as the rest of this nutty bunch. I too have just got a laying flock of Salmon Favorelles, lovely birds. Mine sort of make a cooing sound when I go in to feed them. I also have just acquired two Lavender Orpington's. I'm so happy. :love: Thank you Claire :jumping:

Re: Hello from Red Deer Alberta

Hey Nuthatch, :welcome:  Great choice on breeds!   My partridge chanties hatched Ameraucanas, Euskal oiloas, Lav Orpingtons, and more chantclers this year.

We are still not 100% on pronunciation either!  :huh:  There are tons of great threads on these and just ask, we love talking about EOs cos :EO:  Enjoy the site :thumbsup:

Use google translate and get it to say it.  The l in oiloa is pronounced like paellla, the rice dish :)
