Isa Brown Chickens

Isa Browns are wonderful laying birds, nice to be around and convert lots of grain into lots of lovely eggs. They're not so great at doing natural things like raising chicks though! Isa Brown chickens have been bred to rarely go broody so we also keep a couple of lovely silkie bantams who regularly go broody and are great raisers of chicks (we just pop the fertile Isa Brown eggs under them). It's always so funny to see the grandma silkies leading a group of gangly isa brown teenagers around the farm.
