    Hi everyone, I just found this wonderfull forum and I am sure I will learn new and nice tips about raising chickens.
    I am living in Moselle (Lorraine Region) in Northern East of France, in the 3-frontiers county ( Thionville County) which is near to Belgium, Luxemburg and Germany (www.moselle-tourism.com)...

    As I can remember my family always breeded chicken, geese, pigeon etc... About chicken, I raise Gold Hollandskrielen ("Dutch bantams"), black Araucanas, Black Alsatians, Marans and Russian tricolor Olroffs.

    About geese I have Emden white geese, Toulouse's, and I am looking for German Geese of Pommerany and Czech Curly whith geese.

    About pigeons, I have Sotto Banca, Black oriental roller, and I am looking for black, white and gold "Drago" [​IMG] I apologize for not knowing the Race English name, this pigeon would be as the "Carrier", but shorter, which weight will be bigger and it would have smaller "caruncles". [​IMG]

    I will post pictures of all the "family"

    I hope you all spend nice times in family for Christmas.

    My wife joins me to wish you all the best for 2010 ! Happy New Year ! [​IMG]

    (F) Nos meilleurs voeux pour la nouvelle année ! Bonne et Heureuse Année 2010 !

    (B) We wensen U een Gelukkig Nieuwjaar ! Fijne feestdagen voor 2010 !
    (G) Wir wünschen Ihnen ein glückliches und erfolgreiches Jahr 2010 !

    Welcome!! [​IMG]

    I'm in the midst of planning a trip to France - we're probably going to spend a few days in Burgundy and I've heard it's somewhat of a poultry center of the country - am hoping to see some chickens when we're there.
