Our Hens produce lovely Free Range Eggs and are fed on locally grown grain plus quality Layers Pellets. These eggs are very much in demand, and we often have none left for ourselves !.
The Poultry flock as of Oct 2013 is made up of Black Rock Hens & Pullets, Lohman Brown Hens and a general farmyard assortment including Silkie & Pekin Bantams.
"Spotty" is our black and white Bantam who strolls and flies all over the property and lays in the most unusual places, one of which was my car trailer loaded with branches, which when I unloaded in Dundee I found 8 eggs with only one broken !.
All the stock are very friendly and always looking for a treat, and will welcome any spare bread you have.
We also incubate eggs and quite often have young chicks on hand.

Fernlea is also home to our Call Ducks.
They are very much Pets, but do produce eggs from February to June which are quite often found around the site !. 
The Calls provide us with hours of entertainment with their antics in their baths plus searching for all escape routes possible, just to beat the system. ( They never stay away long in case they miss a treat and you only need to pick up a spade and they are inches away looking for worms and grubs). Another escapade is raiding food from the chickens and quite often you will see them being chased by a chicken with feathers in its mouth.
We also breed calls by both incubator and with Ducks sitting on eggs. Last year we had one duck sitting on 15 eggs and managed to hatch and rear 14 which was very good.
We have 3 main enclosures with ducks plus we have Chick the duck who thinks he is a chicken and lives in the hen house rather than frequenting with the other ducks.
Our garden pet ducks are Shadow & Coco and can regularly be seen grooming and chasing Flora our Westie and afterwards they sit in the Duck house for a rest. ( Flora then needs a bath ).
Photos of some of them are on our Photo page.
  
                          Fantail Doves

We usually have a surplus of Fantail Doves which are for sale, and have a local retired Carpenter who makes Dovecotes to order at a very reasonable price for anyone wishing to keep these lovely birds. Our birds are very much aware of the Buzzards & Hawks which is a good thing when initially stocking.
