Monks Orchard Chickens

Welcome to the Monks Orchard Chickens run!  Following Year 3 hatching out chicks, we decided to set up Monks Orchard mini farm. After a lot of research, we chose 6 hybrid chickens. We visited Martins Wood Farm who explained what was involved in keeping chickens. After setting up the fox proof run we collected our chickens. We have -


Rhode Island Rock called Louise


Black Tail called Delila


Gold Line called Nyah


Skyline called Lucy


Speckled Maran called Helen


White Ranger called Danny

A wonderful product of keeping chickens is fresh eggs. If you would like 6 wonderful, fresh eggs for just £1.50,  please speak to the school office.
