New Arrivals

Maria, Betty and Dorothy.

Hello reader, i’m very excited, we have increased the number of varieties we have by 300%, that sounds like alot when you put it that way, but basically what we did, was go and buy 3 new chicks, all of different breeds, as we only had the one breed to begin with, (the brown shaver), it’s quadrupled our breeds instantly.

The new varieties are, Black Minorca, Light Sussex( sounds like a brigade of calvalry), and a Wyandotte Gold Lace, the Minorca is quite a large bird, and the chick is a few weeks old, and the two younger ones have adopted her as their surrogate mother. The Black Minorca is a fine bird, she has black/ blue eyes that look quiet demonic, the devils’ own hen. The breeder from whom we purchased the chicks, had so many breeds, with some amazing specimens, she is a member of the Auckland Poultry Society, and enters lots of shows.

Also, much to the delight of t.o.h., this poultry breeder also breeds pigs, and there was a litter of piglets running around in the neighbouring sty, that will be the next addition i feel to the urban farm, fortunately they were all pre-sold.

  1. How come you’ve tagged this post with ‘pigs’ and ‘piglets’. Surely your New Lynn haven is too small for our porcine cousines to root around in the bamboo. Unless you’ve got a secret stash under the house you’re not telling your lady friend about…

  2. on the other side of the creek, there ‘s room for two piglets/pigs, hmmmmmm? kiwi bacon?
