    Hey, I'm looking to rehome a Blue Laced Red Black Wyandotte cockerel'
    He is a beautiful bird located in North Idaho originally out of Foley lines, bred by Chickenhill Farms. Good temperament and not an all day crower.[​IMG] Free, of course, to a good home. Pictures don't do him justice. He's big and about 6 months old.

    Hello!

    I finally found the thread for this area, it only took me months to get the hang of this website and track down the thread I wanted. [​IMG]


    I live outside Coeur d'Alene, and I am so happy to find people who can talk chicken with me. In May my wonderful husband took me to Big R to purchase chicks. I planned on 3 EE's and 2 of another breed, which I would determine once I was at the store. I ended up getting Partridge Rocks and had to get 4 EE's because I would have left one chick in an aquarium all by her lonesome. ...Since then chicken math has struck twice, my boss gave me 4 culls from her flock. Funny thing, one has not started laying, and the other 3 lay almost EVERY SINGLE DAY. The second installment of pullets was a Craigslist find. When I went to buy them, I could see they had Scaly Leg Mites, so I have been treating them, and with good results.

    I think every day I see another breed that I want... Sigh.[​IMG]

    Hello Nan,

    Athol is so close to Coeur d'Alene and I have been dreaming about Silver Gray Dorkings for months. I started reading about them and just thought they sounded like the coolest bird. I am interested in a couple for the spring, if any are available. All of your breeds sound like you researched them well and chose them for their special qualities. I hope to hear from you again!

    Hi Darina,

    I sent you an email. I love Silver Grey Dorkings. The hens look like proper country hens and the cockerels look like they're wearing black business suits. They are absolutely beautiful. Right now I have about 15 cockerels hatched last year that I have allowed to free range, so the "boys" have been all over the pastures. With the snow, however, they tend to stay in thier coop.

    Anyways, like I said in my email, hatching has begun! Let me know when you are ready and I should have availability.

    Nancy

    Hatching what? Chickens, Quail? Anything within reach? Heehee. This weekend I ordered a kit for a Chicken Tractor/pen.

    By the way, here is a local guys who makes small coops out of "found" materials. Pretty cool if you ask me!
