Re: I'm so excited!!

Oh oh gubi looks like this could be complicated then :sad: the pictures I saw could easily have been of bielfelder zwerghuehner. Some of my EOs look alot like that in fact. What are the differences?

Re: I'm so excited!!

The Bielfelder is an autosexing breed female chicks look almost like the welsummer chicks and the males are much a lighter brown.  They are also much deeper in their chest and you can hardly see the thighs on them.  The Euskal Oiloak stand more upright.

Re: I'm so excited!!

The standards are very similar, weight roosters 3-4 kg hens 2.5-3.25kg and laying ability 230 eggs in the first year.  The Bielefelder are wider and lower to the ground then the Euskal oiloak

I just got off the phone with a vet from CFIA. She was very helpful, although it was just a quick call for now.  She's faxing me the info on import/export regulations between Canada and the States for hatching eggs......and for import from SPAIN!! She said there shouldn't be a problem importing directly from there!! I let you know more as I find out. :happycrowd" Now lets line up some people willing to export...oh Lys....:hi:

--------------------
Hi Susan , :thumbsup:
I know I am brand new to this breed. Just barely getting my feet wet trying to learn about them. But, I wonder.... I was researching Pendescendas(sp?) a while back as a part of an extended study on dark egg breeds. ( I've been working with Marans the last 2 years) I ran across all the info on the semen preservation  projects the Spanish are working on.
http://www.fao.org/docrep/006/y4924t/y4924t09.htm
Very interesting.  I guess Lys would know if there is a project for EO's like there is for several other Basque livestock breeds. That said, I wonder if the frozen or chilled semen for the EO could be imported. Dog people do it all the time. No quarantine for canine semen. I wonder about poultry semen? I wonder if importing the semen and breeding the hens by artifical insemination  might work. What do you think?
Best,

Re: I'm so excited!!

As far as I can tell USA requires inspections for semen from Canada.  That does include dogs, cats and all types of birds, as well as more traditional farm animals. 

This was on this page http://www.inspection.gc.ca/english/ani … od5e.shtml

"An import permit is required from the USDA for the following:

    any livestock (including semen or embryos), poultry, birds, or semen that are destined to enter the U.S. by air, sea or an inland port of entry other than those listed below;"

Penedesencas are neat birds too!  :love:

Re: I'm so excited!!

Well, in any case, i don't think the semen thing will work...I checked and poultry semen is only viable for 6-12 hours. I don't think that's long enough to get here from an EU country. Maybe Canada. I don't   *think*, might be   wrong, the viability is any  longer if it is chilled or frozen.
Best,

Re: I'm so excited!!

also very new to this
is there any breeders in England? I was born there and have family there I could get someone from the inside to pick up eggs and pack/ship to Canada but I dont know anything about the red tape. Or should I just say I'm here to help where I can to help get some new blood. Would the cost be that bad if we all pooled together. If there is anything I can do let me know.

Re: I'm so excited!!

Hi Chrish,
Welcome to our Forum. We have another newer discussion going on "Does anyone speak French" in General Discussion. I have hunted for anyone in England that has EO's and so far no one has even heard of them. We are now looking at a lead from Germany.

Some of us are driven by the need to make animals a part of our lives. We are soothed by their presence, fascinated by their behavior, and amused by their antics.
