    I wondered if anyone was currently selling Houdan eggs on the east coast? I would love to add this breed to my top hat flock.
    TIA,
    Maggie

    How is your Creve doing? [​IMG] I ended up with TWO roosters and one pullet from my last hatching...the last one hatched kept changing sexes, I swear. Now I'm 99% sure it's a roo (of course!) So I have to sell one....I have bantam white houdan and bantam mottled houdan--I'm still looking for a suitable roo though because although neither has laid an egg--neither has crowed yet, either! LOL So I think I have two hens!

    Oh my 1 and only "Creve"(her name) is doing very well and she is a real beauty. She will be 4 mos. old on 9/30.
    Very friendly and follows me everyplace. She is a reall loner and wants to roost in my rose of Sharon tree every night rather than sleep with her buddies in the coop. I have to trim that tree down so I can keep on reaching her to place into the coop nights. She cracks me up! I just love her.

    sorry to hi-jack--she looks gorgeous! They are really funny little chickens...and friendly, too! It's a wonder why they are not more popular?

    My Polish hen is so skittish next to her it isn't funny. and she is hand raised the same way.
    Creve just comes arunning whenever I call her name like a puppy. [​IMG]

    Hi Maggie,

    Where's your Creve "Creve" from? I've been trying to get an idea what hatcheries and breeders out there have Crevecoeurs and what they are like. She looks like a nice bird, is she standard or bantam?

    Best - exop
