Meet Our Poultry

We have some awesome Poultry living here with us at the ASU. On a visit you can see them up close, hear our staff tell you all about them and, in some cases, have a close encounter!



Buff Orpingtons have a very placid, friendly and docile nature, one that is tolerant of being handled. They are one of the best birds for the first time keepers

Excellent foragers for free-ranging but also happy to be confined in a smaller space. Good egg layers, will continue to produce eggs even in cold weather.

Araucanas are great characters, they are a very friendly breed, inquisitive and easily tamed to come to hand for pets. The cock birds don’t tend to be aggressive.
