    Quote:I'm at the far western side, near the OH boarder....northwest of Pittsburgh. It's probably the exact opposite of Ligonier, which I believe is southeast of the city??

    Edited to add.....Did you watch the game yesterday? [​IMG]

    ==================
    Ligonier is just over the mountain and west of Johnstown. Yeah, we're south of you. Nice country up
    whereyou live My youngest son and I used to ramble around it, going to Airsoft games last year
    before he joined the Coast Guard.
    Yeah, what an awfu game. We just got outplayed. We got creamed. My Terrible Towel didn't get much
    use, sigh. The guys definitely weren't wearing their playign genes.
    Onward and upward,
    Karen in Ligonier

    I am excited about these Basque hens. The breed (Euskal Oiloa) is supposed to be one of the friendliest breeds of chickens. Even the roos. The day old chicks will run up to you to be picked up. Will climb on your hand. The colors in America are a barred Black-Tailed Red color called Marraduna (like a barred New Hampshire). and a ermine color ( like a Light Sussex), and some other intermediate colors.
    Only US sounce of this breed: http://www.skylinepoultry.net/Marraduna_Basque.html
    Best,

    Quote:How beautiful! I never heard of them. We'll all send +++++ vibes for a great hatch! We will need lots of pictures [​IMG]

    edited cause I'm not sure these are the ones you're hatching...or do you have them already? I might have to take a drive southeast of Pittsburgh earlier next year [​IMG]

    Thanks! Leilani thinks she's a little princess and LOVES the baby chicks, she could watch them for hours but not sure what she'd do if she could get at them! Kona likes to "check the babies" and will run to the basement by himself to check them, I don't think HE would harm them! Maui could care less about the babies or the big girls! [​IMG]

    We love Hawaii, actually have family there so we visit fairly often so when I got Kona I decided to name him a hawaiian name, his name means leeward and is the city on the sunny side of the Big Island, Maui was a Demi-god in polynesian and I joke he's an island all his own! Leilani means Heavenly Flower and couldn't be more appropriate. Probably more info than you were looking for but can you tell they are my babies?
