Cock-a-doodle-do….there’s a new chick in town

Cock-a-doodle-do….there’s a new chick in town


Our ducks have ruled the roost for a long time.  They’re friendly creatures though, and this month they’re welcoming a different breed to the farm: our beautiful new range of polished bamboo chickens.

These handcrafted birds have moseyed on down to the ranch in two flocks;  au naturel or the wonderful Western posse who sport brightly painted cowboy boots and matching colourful combs.

Just like our famous Indian Runner ducks, our chickens are designed here in Devon and created from sustainable bamboo in Indonesia by a dedicated team who hand finish, polish and paint our individual characters, ready to return the flock to our farm in the Westcountry.

It’s an auspicious time to welcome our newest feathered friends. 2017 is the year of the Rooster, after all – meaning we’re in for a year of both drama and productivity.  Each Chinese New Year animal is also paired with one of five elements and this year it’s Fire.  Interestingly, the Chinese see Roosters as epitomising punctuality, so perhaps it’s time to start wearing a watch because the combination of year of the Rooster, and the Fire element is said to mean a year of top-speed action.

If you were born in the Year of the Rooster (1933, 1945, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005) you’re said to be characterized as observant and hard working, active and talkative and as enjoying social events and being the centre of attention.  You’re in the company of Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Bob Marley and Stephen Fry as a Rooster baby.

Now, before too many feathers are ruffled down on the farm, why not consider adopting one of our feisty, fiery chickens?  Choose from either the plain natural  natural wood range or their colourful cousins who have painted combs  and matching spotty cowboy boots in five different colours.  Our chickens come in three sizes: cockerel, hen or chick.

In the meantime, we’ll be ensuring all our birds live in harmony in our Devon farmyard.  Research says ducks like to hang out together and are less independent than chickens.  But chickens are quick to become attached to their human owners making them great pets.

If you make friends with one of our cowboy chickens, be sure to send a picture to our Facebook page – and do let us know how they get on with our faithful bamboo ducks too.
