Buff Chickens

Well as you know I'm on the lookout for some new stock
I have locals that have taken birds from me over the years so I have loads of breeds of cock birds to choose from when my table bird project gets going again.

Anyway Easter Sunday we were in a lovely local pub having Sunday dinner and out the window I saw some stunning Buff Chickens.
Now although they were a real good utility size they weren't the over feathered power puff Orpingtons you normally see.

So Buff Plymouth Rocks maybe  

So I'm taking Mrs C there tonight to investigate further  
Although don't tell her that

I'll wait to see how you go on.

Well following a lovely meal and 5 alcoholic beverages we are no further on 😉

I know the name of the guy who owns the field and chickens but he wasn't in.
That means I will have to go back to the pub 👍
Really I'm going to have to keep going back until I find him, haha.
But these birds were some of the nicest I've seen.

Tally ho !!!!!!!!

Yes I've looked at the Lincolnshire Buff and there a real nice bird with a great history.
Not sure if these birds are LB as I don't think they had black tails.
