Just moved back to somewhat sunny and cold Nova Scotia Canada. Over the winter I have been pecking around to start a new flock in my new retirement. So far met some very nice people and think I am on my way to building a nice flock.
However, there were a couple who try as they might wanted to set me straight on their great knowledge and the reason what certain breeds or breeders were no good. It is a shame when we are so caught up in ourselves that we forget why we are in this hobby to start with. New blood as with new stock and he entering of some old heritage breeds only helps to build a stronger gene pool and as with chickens and people will made this hobby stronger. I hope I meet more people who say hello, glad to see a new breeder here and great to see Jerseys or Barred Rocks back in the area. They have been missed. Bluenosechicken
