Little Birch Farm is growing! We now have 6 ducks – 3 Blue Swedish and 3 Black Indian Runner Ducks, along with 32 chickens in the flock. Our original flock of 5 Bantams – a Seabrite, a Chinese Fantail, 2 Cochins & a Brahma have been joined by 3 Black Austerlorps, and our newest Heritage breeds – 5 Gold-Laced Wyandottes, 4 Danish Brown Leghorns, 4 Mottled Anconas, 5 New Hampshire Reds and 4 Ameraucanas. The flock is watched over by 2 Bantam Roosters. They all very happily free range on our farm!
The original flock:
Butterscotch (Scotchie) a Seabrite
Hennie, a Bantam Cochin (and a very nice Aunt to Pearl's Chicks!)
Brahma Mama, a Brahma Cochin - both Brahma Mama and Hennie lost
their twin sisters to Hawks 2 years ago
Pearl, a Chinese Fantail (and a wonderful Mommy!)
Louise, one of Pearl's chicks who is now laying
The new additions to the flock:
5 Gold-Laced Wyandottes
5 New Hampshire Reds
4 Danish Brown Leghorns - these girls always think that the grass
is greener on the other side of the fence and are constantly getting
out of the yard!
4 Black Australorps
4 Mottled Anconas
Macaroni the Bantam Rooster
And the Ducks!
3 Blue Swedish and 3 Black Indian Runners
