A RARE FIND

Your Chickens - - Contents -

Once in a while we come across an un­usual breed of chicken that is right ‘off the radar’. Thanks to Amanda McCal­lion, a Your Chick­ens reader who con­tacted us to tell us about the Pol­ish ‘Green-legged Partridge. Amanda breeds these birds and wanted to share her en­thu­si­asm for them. De­spite their very low pro­file, Amanda says these birds are very pro­duc­tive birds and em­i­nently suit­able as back gar­den pets. “They are al­ways happy to full the nest­box with great tast­ing free range eggs,” she said. You can read Amanda’s ac­count of these fas­ci­nat­ing birds on pages 6-9.
