Black, Lavender, Blue & Splash
The Araucana is originally from South America. Because of its unusual trait of laying BLUE/GREEN eggs, it is also know as the ‘Easter Egg Chicken’!
The Araucana is a very hardy fowl, It comes in a range of colours & is an good forager & their egg laying ability is excellent.
They are a wonderful addition to any flock with the hens tending to be very docile and are very pretty wandering around the garden.

Cochins are a very large bird, which has originated
from China. And until very recently, they were all but extinct in
These are a very quite, gentle bird, which can make wonderful pets or backyard birds and lay limited numbers of pinkish tinted eggs.
They are easily contained, being slow, gentle giants
with good mothering abilities.
Belgium D'uccles -
Belgium D'Uccles are a easily managed bantam breed which requires little
space as they are not great wanderers.
The Mille Fleur is one of the more beautiful of the colours available and are lovely to watch forage in the undergrowth.
The Belgium's are great little layers of small white eggs and are an excellent breed for children and smaller backyards.
They will go broody at various times throughout the year & are excellent mothers.
Houdan -Mottled & Self White
With its unusual butterfly comb, five toes & a crest similar to the Polish, the Houdan is considered a very pretty and exotic breed.
We have found it to be an extremely docile, easily handled bird, which is very fast growing and easy to look after.
The Houdan makes an excellent back yard chicken due to it’s very good laying ability, and is a very pretty bird to watch foraging in the garden.
It’s truly one of my favourite birds. And one I would recommend to the poultry enthusiast with limited room.

The Polish –or Poland breed
Whilst being reasonable layers, the Polish are a very
endearing breed. They do not go broody, which is a bonus for those who are
not interested in breeding.
