    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

    4 Ameraucanas

    Macaroni the Bantam Rooster

    And the Ducks!

    3 Blue Swedish and 3 Black Indian Runners

    Lovely chooks! However, if you think that the Danish Brown Leghorns are bad for escaping, you want to introduce them to my production red - Rusty (aka 'Dora the Explorer' and more recently 'Deviant Chicken'!) She WILL NOT stay where she is meant to! 1000m² of back garden with vast expanses of grass, wild bird table, log pile, kitchen garden and borders to dig in is more than enough for my other two girls, but Rusty thinks that the gravel drive and small lawn at the front of the house is far more interesting!
