  2. Hi Matt and Sue,
    Welcome to the farmingfriends forum. What breed of calves do you rear. I have charolais cattle!
    I will have to look up the columbian black tails not sure what they look like. I have a few hens, quail, ducks, guinea fowl and cats!
    Kind regards

    Hi Matt and Sue

    Is the holstine the black and white cattle?
    I take it the Angus are the Aberdeen angus?
    My late Father kept beef stock mainly and we had charolais as well as some other breeds. My favourite time was when the calves were born.

    I have some ducks and cats as well. I hope your new hens will settle in well.

    Regards
    Lorna

  6. Hi All,
    I have read that the Columbian Blacktail hen is a cross between Rhode Island Red, Sussex and other “hardy breeds”
    They look like the rhode island red with a black tipped tail!
    Kind regards

    Thanks Sara, just looked at them and they are very pretty birds. I see Waitrose sell eggs from these birds which is impressive . I have had both Light Sussex and Rhodes in the past and they were wonderful birds . With a cross like that they should be great laying hens . Regards Mama
