We have a number of small flocks of chickens at the farm. Our main laying flock are Light Sussex. We usually have around 15 hens, led by our fantastic cockerel, Jeeves Jnr.
We are also building up a smaller flock of Cuckoo Marans who lay lovely dark brown eggs although less prolifically than the Light Sussex and they are also better for the table. We also have a flock of ex-battery hens and other commercial hybrids that we have been donated which we keep solely for their eggs.
