Does anyone know where I can order Ancona rose-comb chicks to Canada?
cool! - Alex,
Ann and App - Lexie,
Last spring, I bought 5 Ancona chicks and 5 Appenzeller chicks. Only 1 Ancona chick died, and I was glad that the others survived. When they grew up, I sold all but one hen, which I named Ann. She is very beautiful. I adore the way she struts around with App (my Appenzeller roo) as if she owns the place. She is very sweet and is very good with my 2 year old sister, Karlie. She is hardy, but last winter, she nearly died from the sudden coldfronts we were getting. Her egg production is about average, and her eggs are a pearly white. I must admit, however, that she isn't "the best" with gardens. She doesn't destroy them, but lately we've been having problems with her picking the ripe veggies off of their vines. All in all, I say that if you want a chicken, the Ancona is the best place to start.
I love this breed. Independent, strong, assertive but not aggressive. Great colour and a lovely fan shaped tail but really hard to buy. After hours searching the internet for a large hen, no success. Can anyone help?
Beautiful comical compact chickens - Katrina, London,
Bought my youngsters from Beacon Stud in Kent and they have been great to tame up and are now as friendly as a pet dog-lovely, healthy birds and just started laying at 15 weeks now and so we will have eggs almost every day for this first year. Spent a long time with these helpful people and was so happy with the care and attention they gave us-all good advice 1st hand and loads of tips-strongly recommended.
