Re: Black and Grey Frizzles

Booboo the black one is my husband's and she likes to perch herself on top of him....

Re: Help working out breed please?

Yes I have, and she's come back to me straight away about the Anconas (without me asking about breed actually )when I sent her pictures of the chicks about 1 week old to show her. We were pretty excited about the new experience so I wanted to say thank you more than anything else. She couldn't see e...

Re: Help working out breed please?

I have been posting on another forum and the suggestion that everyone seems to stick with is New Hampshire Red... It is part of the list of hatching eggs that I could get from the place I got them from (Hens for Pets in Nottinghamshire). I know it is definitely a pure breed of a type of Bantam, just...

Re: Black and Grey Frizzles

A bit of mud doesn't deter from trying and dig a dust bath nor scratching around for worms. It's Incredible how they quickly get bac...

Black and Grey Frizzles
