We currently have 5 cats, Rosie, Jemima, Buddy, Ginger and Mrs Cat.

Rosie and Jemima made the journey from the UK with us.  Buddy is the youngest and Ginger and Mrs Cat are French cats which adopted us!  They love the large garden and woodland, and spend hours sunbathing on the patio and the decking.

We have 8 chickens.  Four white Silkies, three Marans and a Black Orpington.  We also have four ducks and a drake.  All of which are kept solely for their eggs.

 

They are all totally free range and are kept for their eggs only.  They have a large straw filled shed to sleep in and have free access to our garden which is approximately an acre.  The garden comprises a large grassy area, orchard and small woodland so there is plenty of variety for them to investigate and scratch around in.  The ducks have a small pond to splash around in.

They all eat a mixture of grain, corn and layers pellets.  The chickens have shown an interest in our blackcurrant bushes, something we are obviously keen to discourage!  During winter they all enjoy some warm pasta on cold days.
