The cast of characters
We currently have two cats, who are essential for rodent control, six hens and one cockerel. We decided not to have any larger animals (goats, pigs, sheep or cows) because of the bureaucratic burden on anything larger than poultry.
Domino's sister Poppy is a real huntress. Partridge, weasel, eating-size rabbits - she'll bring them through the cat flap or leave them on the patio. When she's not hunting or cleaning her immaculate white bits, she likes to snooze al fresco and will accept stroking.
These off-white birds may be a bit behind in the looks department, but they are steady and reliable.
