Hello from Levin

Postby OorooBecky » Sun Mar 19, 2017 9:50 pm

Hi there,

I am new to this community, I have a range of Chickens: Shavers, Orpingtons, Silkies, Frizzles and Suffolks. Saw amazing footage of Brahma Chickens and I just got to know why don't we have these beauties here and is there a way to get them here?

Hi and welcome to the forum - sounds like you have a nice variety of chooks there. On the Brahmas, I know that there was some people working on 're-creating' this breed from the breeds that already exist in New Zealand, but I'm not sure how far along that project got. However you may get your Brahmas one day! :)
Pea (?), Martha (L Sussex), Bess (Australorp), Elsa (Orp), Petal (B'velder), Dottie (Sp Sussex), Olive (Welsummer), Peggy (W Leghorn), Gertie (SLW), Maureen & Doreen (NHB), Hazel & Tilly (SPW), Lilly & Ivy (Orps) and Silver Appleyard ducks!

Hi OorooBecky,
welcome to the forum. We used to have Brahmas in NZ but unfortunately they disappeared . They last known flock of Brahmas was on Rangitoto Island.
But sadly the Department of Conservation decided to destroy them instead of relocating them.

Hi OorooBecky,

we're in Foxton - we've got ducks (Campbells, Swedish, Crested, Magpie, Cayuga, Orpington, Welsh Harlequin, Silver Appleyard, & probably missed a few), chickens (Orpingtons, Sussex, Minorca, Leghorn, Hamburg + more), bantams (mostly Pekin, but a few Wyandotte too) and turkeys
so a bit overrun!

when you said 'Suffolk' - did you mean Sussex?
