Excited - ordered chooks!

Recommended Posts



I'm so excited I had to come and tell you all. I've just been to see a lovely lady who breeds chickens for a couple of chooks to go with my omlet pair. They were so gorgeous, I wanted them all! My choice was limited in the end due to the time of year, but I've chosen a gold duck wing araucana and a gold campine. I wasn't too sure about the campine as I've heard they can be a bit flighty. But this one came over to check out me and 2 year old son. If only I'd had some food I'm sure she would have eaten out of my hand - she is so beautiful! And she was the only one in a field of wyandottes, sussex and orpingtons, so she did play the sympathy card. And the araucana looked lovely - I didn't get as close to her, she just looked like a big, dusty bundle of feathers!

Now I really can't wait until 25th November!

:D:D:D:D (I really am grinning like an idiot!)

Hi Mel,

It was Warwickshire Rare Breed Farm at Church Lawford, near Rugby. Only 10 minutes from Lutterworth. Found it in the yellow pages. It sounds quite grand, but it was really just a very large back garden and I could only see chickens, no other animals. She had a beautiful selection though! I met the araucana's Dad - what a magnificent bird!! I was kicking myself I didn't take a camera. Poor Dusty looked quite dowdy next to Daddy.

Just goes to show how excited I was - I never thought to ask about vaccinations or anything else (by the way, what else should I be asking?) :oops:
