Oh yes dear chronologically challenged, not here yet readers, the Landlord has given us the go ahead to keep some chickens in our back garden. How excited am I? Life a 5 year old at Christmas! We are thinking of getting one each of several different breeds. We'd love ex-battery hens but as were are planning on running a farm and making most of our money with chickens it seems sensible to "try out" the breeds we might like. We originally settled on 3 birds which I had already names Flora, Fauna and Merryweather. We are thinking of maybe getting 4 which means that poor bird will have to be called Maleficent to fit in with the theme :o) Here are the 3 we have decided on.
First up then is the Light Sussex
Next the Rhode Island Red.
Last the Miss Pepperpot.
Anyone out there in Blogland have any ideas for a fourth breed?
