I am so excited to announce that about 15 Euskal Oiloak chicks just hatched in California out of 21 eggs!  The new owner loves them and is amazed how strong and big they are even after the eggs were mailed from Skyline Poultry in Tennessee!  I know he is going to love them even more when they start hopping onto his hand for attention.

Now we are looking forward to the next lot of Euskal oiloak eggs to hatch as the USA invasion is officially underway.  The second ones were to the same owner 20 days ago and they are pipping right now!

There are more in the incubator in Louisa County, Virginia as a fairly new family to chickens is looking forward to adding these to their new flock.  Their kids will love them!  I am sure there are plans for even more in the USA!  I know James at Skyline has a waiting list, and I can't thank him enough for sharing these.  It's hard not to when they are really great birds.

I will post pics of these new babies when we get them in,  this is a historic time!  Thanks for reading. 

There's lots of great info on the site and here's our resources page Euskal Oiloak if you want to read as much as you can and our forum has lots of enthusiastic Euskal Oiloa owners in Canada, ready to help and share what we know as this breed is so rare and unknown and we have now have over 10 years combined experience with them.  I've had them 3 1/2 years now and can tell you anything you want to know.

    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!
