The Nelson Road chicken flock increases in number......
I wanted you to meet the new girls!
They came from a breeder in Dorset and picked them up while I was down there last friday.
I have 3 little Pekins (Millefleur, Mottled and a Blue) and a Partridge Silkie.
They are about 8 weeks old- and are all girls- however im a little suspicious of the Mottled Pekins comb- it looks a little large for my liking but ive got my fingers crossed as its a long way to go to take her/him back!
Because they are still young they are staying inside at night for the next weeks or so before going out permanently- and intergrated hopefully with the rest of the girls later in the summer.
We have decided the names of the new girls are:
Storm- the Blue Pekin
Twiggy- the Mottled Pekin
Fleur- the Millfleur Pekin
and Dodo the Partridge Silkie
Me trying to make friends with a Pekin Cockeral at the farm!
