Recently Allen brought our family some of his heritage New Hampshire Red hens to keep. These birds are the perfect addition to our newly improved coop and run because they are a hearty breed, great layers and will do well in an urban cottage farm set-up. While I can’t give any of these birds away (I don’t think they would fit well in a flate-rate box) I am excited to be able to give away one of his beautiful wreathes just in time for Christmas!
I feel a particular kin-ship with Mr. Smith, because like our little family, he loves history- especially American history- and that is reflected in almost all of his work – from his Holiday Collection to his Heritage Poultry Conservancy.
We could not be more excited about our hens and I cannot wait to share about this special day a little later on.
