Re: Croad Langshan cockerels, 1 black, 1 white

I took some photos of these boys this afternoon, but have no idea how to down load them.

Can anyone please help? Many thanks.

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.

Croads, black and white

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...

Re: Can anyone tell me if australaup and black Orpington are the same breed. Or what are the differences

They are different breeds, both are large and black obviously.

If you look up and read their origins though you may find they are related in some way, a common ancestor.

Re: To hatch or not to hatch...

Rearing chicks and watching them grow is an absolute joy. Not only do you get sweet friendly super tame chickens from them who love you for their lifetime, but the watching them grow into beautiful birds is a great reward. I only ever hatch my own flock, and the rewards are great. My first were rais...
