Over the weekend we added some new pullets to our flock. We drove down to Corvallis and picked up four poulet de Bresse and one Copper Maran from Fraiser Creek Farm. They are all about 4 months old and should start laying fairly soon. This brings our flock up to eight hens and two roosters.
The poulet de Bresse are from a Canadian line of stout birds which are great egg layers and are also prized for the quality of their meat. They are a lovely white breed with blue-grey feet and lay creamy white eggs.
