Hello & Welcome


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.

Re: New EO owner from Manitoba

Hello popular girl
I’m from Arborg MB. Got my first EO’s a month ago. Very interested in helping improve the breed. Not sure how close the breed standard they are but I’m guessing from some of the pure white ones I’m not that close yet LOL. Looking forward to getting to know you all and working with this awesome breed. I got 46 but lost 5 the first week so I have 41 and 10 more coming. Also have 26  Beltsville Small White Turkeys :turkey: and 45 White Chantecler Chickens :layer: on the way.

Re: New EO owner from Manitoba

Sounds like the start of a really nice flock of EOs Chris! Interesting about the white...I read somewhere that in Spain they were selecting against the white poping up.

It would be awesome if you can put the town you are from in your Profile (there is a place under Personal). We have a few other members from Manitoba as well.

And it's great you are interested in bringing more into Canada although I think that project is going to take a few years (good things take time right?).

Re: New EO owner from Manitoba

Welcome ChrisH.  I am sure you are finding these to be awesome chooks.  Great choice in the chanties, too, they are very cold hardy and lay well in the winter.  I have partridge and think they are very pretty, though nowhere near as friendly (or smart) as the EOs. 

:turkey: The Beltsville turkeys are cool too (and tasty but don't tell them that!)  :eat:

Great you want to be involved in the import, :thumbsup: we have a bit of footwork before we can even come up with a plan. Once we get the basic import requirements from the CFIA in plain English we can start to choose some options and make some plans.
