Araucana Chickens

Weatherbury Farm's guests' favorite breed of chickens. Introduced as chicks in late summer 2000, the hens began laying their renowned blue, green and pink eggs in the spring of 2001.

Weatherbury Chickens are named after Lewis Carroll characters (Alice in Wonderland, the Mad Hatter, and the Queen of Hearts).

 

Leghorn Chickens

We recently added Leghorns to the barnyard. (They & Araucanas are our 2014 spring  peeps.) Leghorns were introduced to North America in 1828 from Livorno, Italy.  By 1865 the breed was know as "Leghorns," the traditional Anglicization of "Livorno."

Collecting eggs at the chicken coop is a favorite of Weatherbury Farm Vacation's guests.
