Hello everyone from beautiful British Columbia! I am new to the forum, but glad to have discovered it. My husband and I are building a coop this month and our neighbors and us are hatching Chantecler eggs. We learned of the Chantecler breed online while researching winter-hardy breeds. To our surprise, it is Canada's only breed, with a wonderful history, yet sadly is on Canada's Rare Breeds list now. We both had chickens growing up so it's a return to our roots and we're both very excited. There is a ton of information here.....it seems a friendly, fabulous site....and I look forward to learning as we go. The adventure has begun......!
