Hello from South of France

Post by Guillaume » Sun Jun 11, 2017 5:15 pm

Hello all.
My name is Guillaume (William in English). I am a poultry breeder since 12 years now. I like especially English poultries.
I keep bantam italian turkeys, light and buff Sussex LF, Cream legbar, bantam phoenix (yokohama single comb for you) in black, partridge, yellow partridge and pyle. Spanish white face bantam : blue, black and splash and... bantam orpington : lavender barred.
Also Onagadori and French Marans.

I come to you because since 2 years now, I am searching Coronation Sussex LF. Maybe one of you could help me? we could make an exchange by example?

Excuse my really bad english. 0:-)

Hi Guillaume, and welcome to the forum. It's great to have another member from France. We have several other people who live there, mostly English ex-batts, so they will be especially interested in your birds and how you keep them. Whereabouts in France do you live?
I hope some of our other members can help you find some Coronation Sussex.

Welcome Guillaume. Marigold, you did make me laugh at "English ex batts"!! :D :D I think there was someone on the now closed down practical poultry forum that kept Coronation Sussex. I remember admiring their photos. Can't remember who it was now though.
Lead me not into temptation. I can find the way myself!

Oh dear! Apologies to the affected by my over-active spell checker!
Would you like a translation, Guillaume?

Hi Guillaume and welcome to the forum from an 'ex-pat' living near Auch in the Gers. Sure your English is better than my French! We use Google translate a lot as well.

We started looking for property in the Lot when we came over 5 years ago, but ended up down here after the area was recommended to us by a friend living near Albi in Tarn. Unfortunately I don't know of anyone keeping Coronation Sussex, but you could try Leboncoin which I used to get a Wyandotte cock from Poitiers.

Thank you chrismahon. No, impossible to find coronation on LBC. It is very difficult to find in UK so in France... :-)07
