Sunday saw us visiting a chicken sale and adding a few more chickens. The plan is to try different breeds and different crosses to find our perfect meat bird.

We added a trio of Buff Brahma’s …

… and a White Laced Red Cornish rooster and hen, and a Dark Cornish hen.

The Cornish, otherwise known as Indian Game, are heavy, muscular birds and are often crossed with other breeds to enhance meat production. Brahma’s are very large, hardy bird known for their calmness, edibility and egg laying.
