Black Sumatra hens -

I have had two of these hens for the last three years. They are aloof and hardy. They come to be scatter fed as they are totally free range preferring to roost extremely high up in the open hay barn rafters, rarely using the coop. One is always going broody, hiding eggs and eventually being tracked down sitting on quite a few and growling at being disturbed. Her bark is worse than her bite. Though she us particularly aggressive to the sheep who keep their distance when she’s like that. They both lay daily for a while then have a week or so off for a rest. I like them as they are not needy and not affectionate. Just go about their business quite happily, totally free range, scatter fed morning and night with layers pellets and corn at night.
