Did you know Odds Farm Park is home to 5 different breeds of chickens? All different colours and sizes, they shouldn’t be missed on a family day out to this children’s farm.
The Buff Orpington Chicken is the rarest breed of chicken at Odds Farm Park. With less than 500 breeding females left, they are classified as ‘Rare’ by the Rare Breed Survival Trust. They date back to 1894, when they were introduced to satisfy the demand for buff coloured birds. With their heavy soft feathers, these already large birds look even bigger, have a soft almost fluffy appearance and a rich golden colour.
Days out at this childrens farm also enables families to see Belgium Barbu D’Uccle Chickens, Light Sussex Chickens, Maran Chickens and Polish Chickens. On a day out with the kids, you can get extremely close to some of our poultry friends in the fun children’s activity, Egg Collecting, plus children can help put the chickens to bed in the daily Eggs & Bacon activity.
Plus, this summer, meet the new baby chicks. Children can watch cute little Buff Orpington and Maran chicks with their mums and dads in the coops next to the Adventure Maze.
Offering plenty of family day out fun, this childrens farm is easily reached from West London, North London, Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire. For Odds Farm Park’s days out website, visit www.oddsfarm.co.uk.
