Snowdrop, the Old Sussex Star, at Harlow Carr
Snowdrop, the Old Sussex Star, at Harlow Carr
There is a chicken run in Harlow Carr Gardens, surrounding a medlar tree. There are 4 chickens in the run and a notice tells us about "Our Hens".
"The friendly docile and productive brown hen is called Tulip.
Hyacinth is the dark brown 'Nero' hen who lays over 300 brown eggs a year
The slightly chunkier grey hen is a 'Blue Star' and goes by the name of Gertrude
Our 'Old Sussex Star' is white in colour and is called Snowdrop"

All 4 hens were very inquisitive and 2 of them poked their heads through the wire to investigate the camera. This is Snowdrop pecking at the camera - the marks have remained on the camera, fortunately the lens is still intact.
