chickens and Turkeys and Guineas, Oh My

We have a diversified flock that started with only heritage, dual-purpose birds, but eventually fell in love with some other fun breeds. We [currently] have blue-laced red and golden-laced Wyandottes, Dominiques, Salmon Favorelles, Cochins, Ameracunas, and the matriarch and our very favorite hen, a barred Cochin named Sister Mary Clarence. We have a full-sized rooster, pictured on the right, Mr. Charles Chickens, as well as a "deputy" bantam rooster, a black Cochin named Deputy Smidgen. We also have seven bourbon red turkeys and five guinea fowl.

 

 

geese

At the moment, we have a Toulouse goose and a Pilgrim goose.
