    I think they sell from the second strain from Greenfire Farms.

    Unfortunately I have to keep 1 to 4 feeders out year 'round because we have resident Hummies (sedentarius Allen's) that don't migrate. If it snows in the lower foothills or if there's a brush fire we suddently get an influx of Allen's and Anna's Hummies. The hot SoCal weather wilts most of the foliage so feeders is all they have for nectar. I increase the winter syrup to a 1:3 ratio instead of the summer 1:4 ratio of sugar water.

    Bith your roo and our hen had a mild case of fowl pox last year.. I'm out this evening, & I can feel the mosquitoes biting my feet. I think I'm going to try something like extra containers with mosquito fish in them around the property.. they are clear on ever getting fowl pox again. I do believe that our to biel.,are first generation Greenfire farms. I need to find out and get back to you. If you want to know. .

  10. I'm starting to fall in love with this breed, esp since I'm a native to Germany, so I love everything that has to do with my home country.
    we are in Jacksonville, FL and I was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction to get this beautiful breed into my own back yard.

    Thank you so much for your help.
