Re: Croad Langshan cockerels, 1 black, 1 white

Yes, HG I agree somewhat. but who is to say, I should have posted pictures of them. They come from good breeders and showers, their natures were lovely, gentle giants. Thankyou for your reply. When I get eggs for next year, I will make sure I get an opinion from an expert before I cull them, it make...

Croad Langshan cockerels, 1 black, 1 white

I have 2 cockerels who need rehoming.
Both are stunning, the white one has just this morning started crowing.
Both are purebred and large, both gentle giants.

Please PM me if you are interested.

Re: Eggless wonders

Because my lot are taking a very long time to mature, I bought a couple of POL Lohmanns from Rokers near Guiuldford. They are such lovely girls, gentle quiet and so well mannered and behaved, it is almost as if they had been to finishing school!! I let them out the same afternoon I bought them, and ...

Re: Croads, black and white

Boo, hoo. I really mean it Hen-Gen, I cannot do difficult things like post pictures, so sorry.
Even my granddaughters who are so clever with online stuff say the task beats them too.

Re: Dustbath question

My girls, apart from the bantams, are on earth, and dustbathing is a natural part of their day, clouds of dust sometimes, and they still do it elsewhere! Flower beds are usually pots with me, and the rest has low fancy metal fencing around the beds, bought in about 12" pieces. I didn't know they wer...

Re: Obvious when you think about it .......!

Gen-Gen, so sorry to hear about your babes. After yet another two fox raids that nearly made me give up a few months ago, when he killed everything during daylight hours, giving up was the only course open. Never give up. He took all my Beautiful black Croads and white leghorns. Some of my Croads we...
