    Hi there from the South Shore of Nova Scotia!!

    Started with chicks back in 2012 after having them as a kid. Got 12 australorp chicks (only got 3 pullets) lol ! Then the sister-in-law found and hova-bator at a yard sale for $5 and gave it to us and our addiction was born!!!! Yeah great deal huh!!

    We then seen an add for Basque Hens got some hatching eggs and had to put an addition to our coop! Then we really got addicted and built a new building 18*20 that we just finished a month ago!!!

    So glad that we are invited to join this site, want to learn and share all we can!!

    Welcome to BYC - so glad you've joined us.
    Funny you should mention the Basque hens, I hadn't heard of them before and this is the second time in a week someone has mentioned them (I had to google the first time).

    I know what you mean, when we first heard of them in 2013 we had to do some research. We have the Euskal Oiloa Marraduna's. They have to be the most friendly chicken known. You feel the love everytime you go around them and have to shuffle your feet not to step on them!

    G’Day from down under Hollowridge [​IMG] Welcome!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
