I am somewhat of a closet chicken expert. It came from reading various books about self-sufficiency last summer and maybe because I have farming in the blood. I also think driving past a chicken farm on my way to my Mum's and seeing a field full of chickens and getting over excited probably hasn't helped this sick, silent love.
Anyway, now it's time for some chicken porn. Provided by photos that people (what ain't me) took.
Friendly & makes eggs all year round.
Pretty feathers, cold hardy and a docile temperament.
Dark brown eggs, yummy to eat, good for backgardens.
Good free range, doting mothers, dual purpose.
Now don't even get me started about my love for Quails... I could go on forever.
