    Thanks for the great advice!

    I got my first trio from The Old Farmhouse in Cross Roads, Tx. I think the last name is Eiland.

They'll be 3 weeks old on Weds. There are 8 pictured

    I know the Old Farm House. I knew they had Legbars and Breda but didn't know they had EO's..

    They have several breeds they're offering. I had a great experience with them.

    My experience with them was not so great, but not every experience can be. They donated Legbars to the Dallas Area 4H club working on the Legbar Project (Which I was very grateful for). The 4H adviser in Dallas mentioned that the youth that got stock from them TOFH did not grow as well as the stock from other sponsors. :-(

    I am glad to see new people taking on the EO's. We put a lot of effort into them and really want to see others achieve great things with them.

    Do you have any photos of you Tunis alavesa hens? How long have you had the Alavesa. I was every interested in the Alavi’s and searched some of the Ocampo publications several years back but couldn’t find much information on that breed/variety. I would love to learn what I can from you.

    I only keep the rooster I show him in the second pic. I have a very clean and light
    marraduna hens to get alavesa hens. Alavesa hen was developed, those days, from very light color marraduna hens and red roosters.

    Are the Llodiana hens barred or non-barred? All the photos I have ever seen of the Llodiana Hens looks like they were barred but all the photos of the Llodiana cockerels I have see looked non-barred.

    The Llodian cockerels always are red and the hens are always a very light color. Do this breed true?

    I would have assumed that a red cock would produce red hens and that a light cock would be required to get light hens. I could never figure out how the Rubia Alavesa coloring was bred.

    Hens are also non barred. Screenshot_20181212-183016~2.png
    When I say light mean lighter red, pale red and without black lacing on the neck.
    Cocks are darker than hens.
    Euskal Oiloa gorria and marraduna are both red columbians (like buff sussex) where marradunas has barred gen and zilarra is White columbian (like light Sussex).
    Llodianas have not black lacing on the neck.
