THE ALSACE FARMYARD

The cockerels and hens of Alsace, which can be black, golden, Andalusian blue or harlequin, and the white and pied geese of Alsace are some of the excellent French poultry breeds, which are unfortunately becoming increasingly rare. They need plenty of space, particularly Alsace hens, who are very active. They readily wander away from the henhouse, and you are sure to meet one!
