Hi, I'm new here and thought I would take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Jasmine, I live with my Mum in Lepperton, New Plymouth. We own freehold 1/3 of an acre which is cleverly divided up to make good use of the land we have.

Between us we own 13 dogs. Mostly for pleasure, but we do show them, and breed very occasionally. We had 2 litters last year and are now on a breeding holiday, there will not be any litters this year! We have 3 breeds, Golden retrievers, Leonbergers and a single Maremma sheepdog.

We are also Poultry breeders, and may choose to exhibit at our local shows if we think we have anything good enough. We have:

Silkies
Polish
Frizzle
Faverolle
Araucana

I have just today obtained 2 cuckoo silkies and I am looking forward to developing this color here in NZ.

Thanks for listening. [;)]

Sounds great! If you are thinking of selling your chooks at any time, please remember to list them on here!

What poultry shows are there around here? I have been wanting to go to one for ages, but have never seen any local ones advertised - please come on and let us know if there is one in North Taranaki. I may get to meet you at one!

11 acres (4 in QEII Covenanted native bush), 15 sheep, 2 beefies, large vege gardens and a goat, and still no dog!:(

Oh, and uncountable wild birds - including fantails, swallows, yellowhammers, morepork, magpies, hawks, pukekos, and even quaill, pheasants and rainbow lorikeets [:D][:D] Not to mention possums, hares, rabbits, rats...

Welcome Chicibo. What a lovely selection of breeds you have. I work with a lady who owns a Leonberger. It was amazing to see him grow from puppy to fully-grown. Talk about a gentle giant.

Cheers, mich.
