Cosmo came to live with us from a breeder who had attempted to create an olive egg laying hen. However, when they realized they had got the crossing of breeds wrong, and no olive eggs would be produced and that they had too many cockerels they decided to kill them all. Cosmo was the only one to escape the cull. He is a Legbar x Maran, and an enormous and extremely handsome boy.
He has a very good temperament and is happy to be picked up for cuddles. Cosmo lives with Primrose, Bessie and Mavis, three hens that were given to us by a family who’s daughter had lost interest in them.
