We've got a new hen and cockerel to keep Bree and Octavia company.
This is Olive
My daughter got them from her friend's brother who has lots of different breeds. Olive looks like a Black Rock but she is very small so she must have some bantam in her as well.
The cockerel is a bantam, and so he is small as well. He's not as handsome as Lotto was, in fact he looks quite comical with his small head and comb. He also looks as if he is wearing a hand-me-down jumper with the sleeves too long, because his wings hang down. He always has some feathers stuck up at the back of his head which nearly got him the name of Alfalfa, but he ended up being called Wilfred.
They're all getting along nicely together.
