…Hens and a Rooster

Black Minorcas in their breeding shelter. Murray’s Farm, Cambridge Ontario. Recorded with my Samsung Galaxy S3 device.

One of my favourite breeds, the Minorca is a breed of chicken originating in Spain. They have red faces, huge red wattles and large red combs. Their earlobes are large and white. They lay large white eggs.

Pastured eggs are the rage of the food world right now, mostly because of flavour. A heritage chicken takes three times as long to mature and start laying eggs regularly as its factory equivalent. What it lacks in speed, it makes up for in taste. A textbook example of slow/real food.
