Expat in Hungary

Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by VillageChicken, May 24, 2010.

  1. Hello,
    I'm totally new to keeping chickens, and have enjoyed learning and following various topics on this site. I'm from California but live in a small village in Hungary with my wife and 1 year old daughter. It's an adventure learning to keep chickens here in a foreign country without easy access to all that one can find in other places. I guess I'm officially hooked now that I've joined.
    I have a few young hens - I haven't learned all the acronyms yet, 2 BO's, 2 Barred Rocks, and two hens that are the hungarian version of an ISA Brown. I have a roo that was supposed to be a barred PR hen, who according to what I've learned on chicken genetics, is Bb with Mh since he's feathering out gold in the hackles, saddle and wingbars.

    Jo napot kivanok! Minus all those lovely little symbols above the vowels! It took forever to learn those.

    My family is from Hungary,and I spent my summers there.It isn't as *relaxing* as it was when I was a child,but still a neat place to visit.Enjoy your time there.....and the food-YUM!

    Eger is a neat little wine town.My mom says there is a web cam that takes daily shots all over the city. Balaton is ofcourse *the* lake to be at during the summer,but I always liked the local town mini lake in Belapatfalva with its weekend mini houses.People would go there to cook out and hang by the lake.It was like camping with a playhouse [​IMG]
    Our town used to be a falu,but I hear it is now a regular big city.

    Spending time in other countries is a neat experience.Last time I was in Hungary I stayed almost 2 years.I watched hens being processed quite often.Pigs were a 2 times a year event.Enjoy some fresh milk if it isn't illegal now there too! I miss my breakfast bread-fresh loaves and little kifli.Save some seeds.Tomato and peppers are great.
    Now I want to visit,lol.

    Have fun!
  8. Welcome from California. We visited Hungary last year. Lovely countryside. Hope you are enjoying the experience! Cheers! [​IMG]
