Our unexpected visitor is going to pastures new today – here he is waiting to be picked up. We think – but are not sure he is a New Hampshire Red – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Hampshire_chicken
As you can see he may not be but its the closest we can find.
His fate was sealed when he decided to chase a screaming Goswinks from the field to the house on Sunday (Pure comedy gold!). He hasn’t shown any real aggression to me – caution maybe but not aggression.
We already have a Cockerel – a White Sussex, and a second cockerel was just not practicable – even if they got on we currently do not have enough hens to go round. And our cockerel is very good – already beaten off one fox attack and does look after his girls food wise.
So we wish good luck to the wanderer!!
