Hello. I have just joined up as I am a keeper of a flock of North Holland Blues that I have been breeding for a number of years. I am not really interested in showing or anything of that nature, just like the birds=they are great "duel purpose". I am hoping to meet up with other breeders in my area {Southland} so as to keep my breeding program going. I have, in the past, been given a rooster who must have had some Dorking or some such, in his breeding, as I do get a brown {or white if male} chick now and again, but have been working hard at trying to breed away from this=buying in eggs from Whangarei was my last move...I know am more interested in buying in roosters. would love to get back to a more "southern" line.

Hi Bobby and welcome to PC.

That's great news that you still have an original strain of North Holland blues. We consider them to be a very rare breed. Have you got pictures of your birds?
