Chickens Arrive at Alderlore!

We received 12 wonderful rare breed chickens for Christmas! 3 Maran Hens (the large wheaten colored ones) who lay mahogany-red eggs, 6 Serama Hens – the tiny ones — they are the world’s smallest chickens and lay eggs that are perfect for pickling or cob salads; and  three New Game Bantams — who look like chickens on stilts, or as we say in the video – velociptor raptors.

Oh! We also received 2 new fawn-colored ducks named Rosie and Ronnie. Thanks to Amy, here is a photo of them swimming with Drake and Drummer in the pond down by the barn.
