Who is in our Chicken Run?

Cookie is a breed called a 'D'Uccle Millefleur. They are beautifully patterned with very feathery feet! We hatched Cookie from an egg!

Clarissa is a Welsummer. She is quite pale for a welsummer and they are excellent layers so we expect lots of eggs from her!

Lola is a Cuckoo Pekin Bantam breed. She is mainly grey and speckled and loves a cuddle!!

Lacey is a Silver-laced Wyandotte breed. She has beauiful black and white feathers and is very pretty!
