Boobs McGee, aka Barbie.
A surprisingly good egg layer and an excellent mother. The smartest and most individual hen I ever met.
Silky X, 3 1/2 years old.
Three of the seven Blackies
Three of you survived to 12 weeks of age: early adulthood. You three showed great promise as young adult chooks. All of you had excellent form as members of our chicken community.
Australorp X Silky cross, 12 weeks.
Bess and Pat (White chooks in middle of front row and slightly to the right)
Mother and daughter, you were sweet natured, docile, friendly and layed lovely white eggs. You were friendly and always close to my feet when I brought the scraps – in a good way. You never made a fuss when you were handled and you were both very pretty hens.
Light Sussex Bantams, 2 years and 1year.
Richard aka Benny Hill (White Silky Rooster, far right)
Richard you were the very best of roosters. You were valiant, compassionate, brave, wise and a little bit silly. You took good care of your hens and babies. I know you did not make it easy for those foxes. I will miss your crow in the morning. I would be lucky to ever have another rooster like you.
Silky, 4 years.
Rest in peace my lovely chooky friends.
