    For a long time I was fascinated with our only autochthonous breed in Slovenia, Styrian Hen.

    So two years ago I finally adopted some chicks. And our flock has started...

    Let me introduce you to Elvis and his harem!

    They are free range, of course. I am really excited about this breed! Great foragers (in sumer up to 80%), great egg production even now in winter, easy to keep, hardy breed, Roos are calm but alert...In all, great breed for any back yard :D

    Last year I also incubated some eggs, 10 of 10 had hatched!

    I also have some japanese quail, that I also adopted them and later on hatched some eggs...

    This is for now...Greetings from Slovenia

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]Glad you joined us!

    Your little flock are beautiful birds. Landraces may not get the attention of deliberately engineered production breeds, but they have so much to offer. It's great to see someone who can appreciate what a local bird can do for the backyard poultry enthusiast. [​IMG]
