Chickens

Origins & Characteristics

All about Henry, Henmione, Cosmo & Luna

We have four chickens at the farm including one cockerel and three hens. All of them are different breeds – Barred Plymouth Rock, Buff Orpington, Black Copper Maran and Exchequer Leghorn – all with their own characteristics that make them unique. Two of them we incubated and hatched from eggs ourselves. Our students loved being part of this process and watching them grow!”
