We grow our own food in a suburban village in the North East of England. Follow us as we keep up the battle to be self-sufficient.

We got another two hens yesterday, a copper black (above) and a white leghorn.
We already have one of each of these breeds. The copper black lays a chocolate brown egg, the white leghorn lays white eggs. Both have settled in though there is the usual bullying that happens when new birds are introduced to an existing flock. The copper black looks like she will give as good as she gets and won't be low in the pecking order.
