I wanted to share that  we have our first Marraduna Euskal Oiloa chicks of the year, albeit a bit late!

There are 13 chicks from the paternal line, Speckled Jims offspring and 2 from the maternal line Blondies!  They are strong and already quite tame and friendly. It's too late to hatch any more, so I'll be sure to enjoy these!

The broody mothers, a partridge chantecler and the slightly less careful mothers, two lavender Ameraucanas, are doing great and very proud!  Blondie has been trying to go broody but we needed to send some of her eggs to BC last week, so haven't let her sit!  Here are lots of new euskal Oiloak chick pictures here.  Not sure how to post them here!  So enjoy!

It always amazes me how vigorous and strong these chicks are, always big yellow and fluffy! 
 
You are in the right place!  Our Euskal Oiloak forum is just over a month old and has over 1000 posts already, many with gorgeous photos of peoples flocks, of all ages!  It seems I am not the only one that is finding this remarkable breed a delight to own!

I am excited because I am no longer moving from the farm and have just set about 30 Marraduna Euskal Oiloa eggs under 3 broody hens, 2 Lavender Ameraucanas and 1 Partridge Chantecler.  I will post pictures when we get some from our two lines!  Thanks for reading, and don't be shy.  It is a great friendly group on the forum and lots of group knowledge and discoveries going on ;-)

    I am a chicken lover (known as Claire Smith or Skeffling Lavender Farm) in Ontario who has had Euskal Oiloa chickens since 2008 and love them! 

    I don't usually organize things, but as these friendly birds are so rare, I wanted to make sure no information was lost and decided to make this site!
